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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Memphis Zoo and Pink Palace Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Thacker Mountain Rail Trail (in Oxford), Forrest L Wood Crowley's Ridge Nature Center (in Jonesboro) and Horseshoe Casino (in Tunica). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Sun Studio, explore the world behind art at Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art, explore the engaging exhibits at The Children's Museum of Memphis, and get engrossed in the history at Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum.

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

In December, daytime highs in Memphis are 55°F, while nighttime lows are 38°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Wed) so you can travel back home.
