INFO


Memphis sits on the Mississippi River in southwest Tennessee and is famous for blues, soul and rock ‘n’ roll that originated there. Elvis Presley, B.B. King and Johnny Cash recorded albums at the legendary Sun Studio, and Presley’s Graceland mansion is a popular attraction.

Other highlights include:

Memphis is conveniently located to several regionals areas in Tenn., Miss. and Ark. From casinos to outlet malls, and even a dog racing park, there is much more to experience outside of the downtown area.
