Birthplace of Rock 'n Roll - Home of the Blues.

Few people alive today have not heard of Elvis Presley, legendary 'King of Rock 'n Roll', and most associate Memphis, largest city in Tennessee, with the iconic deceased singer. Hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to the city each year, particularly on Elvis' birthday, to make a pilgrimage to Graceland, the mansion where Presley lived and died.
Citing its famous singing sensation as the only draw card in Memphis, however, is failing to do this go-getter city in southwest Tennessee justice. But music makes Memphis special, for sure: not only rock 'n roll but also the fact that the city spawned the modern musical forms of blues and soul as well. Music fans from all over the world stroll down legendary Beale Street in the downtown area, happy to be walking in the footsteps of their heroes.
Aside from touring Graceland there are several other music-related attractions to grab the attention, and a whole lot of other things to see and do in Memphis. The nightlife is world-renowned; the cuisine, particularly barbecue, irresistible; and there are fascinating museums, great gardens, Mississippi river boats, amusement parks, and some quirky cultural and natural sights to explore. 

  • Take in the atmosphere of this buzzing city with a night of "Southern Barbecued Ribs", the beverage of your choice and fantastic live blues music at one of the many bars on famous downtown Beale Street.
  • Take a tour of Sun Studio's where Elvis, B.B. King, Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash, among others recorded. In more recent years it has been used by artists like U2.
  • Stax Museum of American Soul Music is well worth a visit and celebrates the music of Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding among others.
  • Graceland the former home of Elvis Presley is a must. See the Jungle Room, Pink Cadillac, and other memorabilia. Elvis' grave is also located on the Graceland grounds.
  • The National Civil Rights Museum in the city incorporates the Lorraine Motel where Martin Luther King Jnr was assassinated in April 1968 and is well worth a visit.
