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.
Step out of the city life by going to Memphis Zoo and Thacker Mountain Rail Trail. Let the collections at National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel and Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Memphis side-trips: Horseshoe Casino (in Tunica), Hampson Museum State Park (in Wilson) and Jonesboro (Forrest L Wood Crowley's Ridge Nature Center & Craighead Forest Park). There's much more to do: make a trip to Graceland, steep yourself in history at The Peabody Ducks, identify plant and animal life at Lichterman Nature Center, and have fun at Overton Park.

For other places to visit, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, read our Memphis trip maker .

In July, daily temperatures in Memphis can reach 91°F, while at night they dip to 74°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sun) so you can travel back home.
