Houston

— 5 nights

Bayou City

Although urban sprawl remains synonymous with Houston, most of the city's tourist attractions lie within the relatively small downtown area, surrounded by diverse neighborhoods housing the nation's biggest African-American, Asian-American, and Latino communities.
Change things up with these side-trips from Houston: Galveston (The Seawall, 1892 Bishop's Palace, &more). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Space Center Houston, stroll the grounds of Glenwood Cemetery, explore the world behind art at The Menil Collection, and get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science.

Memphis

— 1 day

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.
Kick off your visit on the 30th (Fri): steep yourself in history at Sun Studio, see the interesting displays at National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, and then don't miss a visit to Beale Street.
