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 Forrest L Wood Crowley's Ridge Nature Center will thrill your kids. Get out of town with these interesting Memphis side-trips: Samuel T Bryant Distillery LLC (in Jackson), Tupelo (Tupelo Automobile Museum & Elvis Presley Birthplace & Museum) and Horseshoe Tunica (in Tunica). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Graceland, get to know the fascinating history of Beale Street, contemplate the long history of Sun Studio, and deepen your understanding at Stax Museum of American Soul Music.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 91°F, and evening lows to 74°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
