Most associate Memphis, largest city in Tennessee, with the iconic Elvis Presley, legendary 'King of Rock 'n Roll'. Hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to the city each year to make a pilgrimage to Graceland, the mansion where Presley lived and died. The city has spawned the modern musical forms of blues and soul as well. Music fans from all over the world stroll down legendary Beale Street in the downtown area, happy to be walking in the footsteps of the blues and soul heroes.

Aside from touring Graceland there are several other music-related attractions, and a whole lot of other things to see and do in Memphis. The nightlife is world-renowned, the cuisine, particularly barbecue, irresistible. And there are some fascinating museums, beautiful gardens, Mississippi river boats, amusement parks, and some quirky cultural and natural sights to explore.
