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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Gold Strike Casino and The Rock & Blues Museum. Head to Covington's Historic Square and Square Booksfor some retail therapy. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Memphis: Clarksdale (The Delta Blues Museum, Deak's Mississippi Saxophones & Blues Emporium, & more), Tunica (Tunica Roadhouse Casino & Horseshoe Casino) and Oxford (Rowan Oak & Square Books, Jr.). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, stop by S.Y. Wilson and Company, explore the galleries of Mud Island, and learn about winemaking at Century Farm Winery.
