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.
Family-friendly places like Memphis Zoo and The Children's Museum of Memphis will thrill your kids. Change things up with a short trip to Horseshoe Casino in Tunica (about 46 minutes away). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Graceland, gain a rich perspective with A Tour of Possibilities, look for gifts at Lansky, and get to know the fascinating history of Beale Street.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, read our Memphis travel planner.

Expect a daytime high around 91°F in July, and nighttime lows around 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
