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 5th (Fri): contemplate the long history of Slave Haven / Burkle Estate Museum, gain insight with A Tour of Possibilities, then admire the masterpieces at Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art, then don't miss a visit to Beale Street, and finally stop by Lansky. On the next day, explore the different monuments and memorials at Elmwood Cemetery, then examine the collection at Stax Museum of American Soul Music, and then immerse yourself in nature at Fort Pillow State Park.

July in Memphis sees daily highs of 91°F and lows of 74°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
