Memphis— 2 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.Change things up with a short trip to Horseshoe Casino in Tunica (about 42 minutes away). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Graceland, take an in-depth tour of Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum, try to win big at Southland Park Gaming and Racing, and stop by Center For Southern Folklore.
