Memphis
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.
Start off your visit on the 20th (Thu): steep yourself in history at Sun Studio, then appreciate the history behind National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, then appreciate the extensive heritage of Beale Street, and finally make a trip to The Peabody Ducks. On your second day here, try your luck at Southland Park Gaming and Racing, then admire nature's wide array of creatures at Memphis Zoo, and then see the interesting displays at Graceland.
