Birthplace of the blues, soul and rock ‘n’ roll, Memphis is an essential stop on any tour of the southern USA, with its remarkable number of musical and historical highlights.
Full of contradictions, the home of Elvis Presley’s over-the-top Graceland mansion is also where you’ll find the stirring National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel, site of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination in 1968. It’s also home to an abundance of cultural riches, including the Brooks Museum of Art, the Pink Palace Museum and the South Main Historic District, a booming area in the 1920s now brought back to life by the efforts of dedicated Memphis citizens.
