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.
National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel and Hampson Museum State Park will appeal to museum buffs. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Mississippi River State Park and Thacker Mountain Rail Trail. Venture out of the city with trips to Pinson Mounds State Park (in Pinson), Parker Pioneer Homestead (in Harrisburg) and Alex Haley House Museum (in Henning). Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Sun Studio, try to win big at Horseshoe Casino, take an in-depth tour of Slave Haven / Burkle Estate Museum, and examine the collection at Stax Museum of American Soul Music.
