Many of the things to do in Memphis revolve around the city's rich musical heritage. Find out why Memphis bills itself as both the "Birthplace of Rock" and "Home of the Blues" at popular attractions like Graceland and Sun Studio, where some of the best-known hits in American music history were recorded. A visit to Beale Street Baptist Church--the oldest African American church in Tennessee--takes you to the roots of the Civil Rights Movement in Memphis, while National Civil Rights Museum--built around the hotel where the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. occurred--traces the history of the movement from the 17th century to the present day.
