Memphis

— 1 night

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.
On the 18th (Fri), examine the collection at Graceland, then stop by Lansky, and then make a trip to Beale Street. Here are some ideas for day two: try to win big at Horseshoe Tunica, then take an in-depth tour of National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, and then contemplate the long history of Sun Studio.
