Memphis

4.2

Birthplace of Rock 'n' Roll

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. The city boasts a revitalized downtown, home to a growing population of young entrepreneurs intent on making the area safe and exciting after many decades of abandonment. A major national transportation hub, Memphis boasts one of the world's busiest cargo airports and a well-developed network of highways and railroads, making it one of the easiest cities to travel to from almost anywhere in the country. Memphis is in Tennessee. Plan the details of your Memphis holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use United States online driving holiday planner.
