Memphis

— 6 nights

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.
Elmwood Cemetery and Sun Studio will appeal to history buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at Stax Museum of American Soul Music and Cat Head Delta Blues & Folk Art. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Memphis: Clarksdale (The Delta Blues Museum & The Crossroad), Horseshoe Tunica (in Tunica) and Rowan Oak (in Oxford). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art, identify plant and animal life at Fort Pillow State Park, get engrossed in the history at Slave Haven / Burkle Estate Museum, and get to know the fascinating history of Beale Street.
