The largest city on the Mississippi River, Memphis bills itself as both the "Birthplace of Rock" and "Home of the Blues." With such a rich musical heritage, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Elvis Presley chose to live in Memphis during his later years.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel and Sun Studio. Your inner history buff will appreciate Parker Pioneer Homestead and Helena Confederate Cemetery. Venture out of the city with trips to Clarksdale (The Delta Blues Museum, Deak's Mississippi Saxophones & Blues Emporium, & more), The Lewis Ranch (in Nesbit) and Rowan Oak (in Oxford). Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Delta Cultural Center, contemplate the long history of Johnny Cash House, don't miss a visit to Graceland, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Beale Street.

To see where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Memphis online road trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 63°F in November, and nighttime lows around 44°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 12th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
