Birthplace of Rock 'n' Roll

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 find plenty of places to visit near Memphis: Samuel T Bryant Distillery (in Jackson) and Tina Turner Museum @ Flagg Grove School (in Brownsville). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Graceland, get to know the fascinating history of Beale Street, contemplate the long history of Sun Studio, and don't miss a visit to The Peabody Ducks.
