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.
For shopping fun, head to Covington's Historic Square or Square Books, Jr.. Do some cultural sightseeing at The Rock & Blues Museum and Sun Studio. Get out of town with these interesting Memphis side-trips: Pinson Mounds State Park (in Pinson), Helena (Helena Confederate Cemetery & Delta Cultural Center) and S.Y. Wilson and Company (in Arlington). There's lots more to do: pause for some photo ops at National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, look for gifts at Square Books, identify plant and animal life at Forrest L Wood Crowley's Ridge Nature Center, and contemplate the long history of Parker Pioneer Homestead.

For other places to visit, photos, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Memphis road trip planner.

In November, daily temperatures in Memphis can reach 63°F, while at night they dip to 44°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
