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.
Start off your visit on the 30th (Mon): pause for some photo ops at National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel, stroll the grounds of Elmwood Cemetery, browse the exhibits of Slave Haven / Burkle Estate Museum, then see the interesting displays at Fire Museum of Memphis, and finally steep yourself in history at The Peabody Ducks. On the 31st (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take an in-depth tour of Hampson Archeological Museum State Park, explore the world behind art at Dixon Gallery & Gardens, then get engrossed in the history at Blues Hall of Fame Museum, then admire the masterpieces at Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art, and finally get to know the fascinating history of Beale Street.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Memphis tour itinerary planner.

In December, daytime highs in Memphis are 55°F, while nighttime lows are 38°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Tue) so you can travel back home.
