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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Dinstuhl's Fine Candy Company, Inc. and Square Books. National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel and Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Memphis: Rowan Oak (in Oxford), Horseshoe Casino (in Tunica) and Crown Winery (in Humboldt). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Sun Studio, make a trip to Graceland, explore the world behind art at Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art, and get to know the fascinating history of Beale Street.

In April, plan for daily highs up to 74°F, and evening lows to 54°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
