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 10th (Tue): tour the pleasant surroundings at Village Creek State Park, get to know the fascinating history of Beale Street, then look for gifts at Saint Blues Guitar Workshop, then contemplate the long history of Sun Studio, and finally try your luck at Tunica Roadhouse Casino. Here are some ideas for day two: get engrossed in the history at Mud Island, try your luck at Gold Strike Casino, appreciate the history behind National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, then make a trip to Graceland, and finally get a taste of local nightlife at B.B. King's Blues Club.
