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 Stax Museum of American Soul Music will appeal to museum buffs. Get a sense of the local culture at Sun Studio and Stan Streets Hambone Art Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to The Rock & Blues Museum (in Clarksdale), Covington's Historic Square (in Covington) and Horseshoe Casino (in Tunica). Next up on the itinerary: stop by Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid, appreciate the extensive heritage of Beale Street, make a trip to Graceland, and revel in the low prices at Tanger Outlet Mall.
