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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Pinson Mounds State Park and Elmwood Cemetery. Visiting Village Creek State Park and Forrest L Wood Crowley's Ridge Nature Center will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Memphis: Chickasaw State Park (in Henderson), Craighead Forest Park (in Jonesboro) and Tanglefoot Trail (in New Albany). There's lots more to do: appreciate the history behind National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, contemplate the long history of Sun Studio, take an in-depth tour of Slave Haven / Burkle Estate Museum, and see the interesting displays at Railroad & Trolley Museum.

To see photos, ratings, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Memphis route planning site .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Memphis International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 27°C in April, and nighttime lows around 14°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
