Memphis: Birthplace of Music Legends

Memphis is known as the place where some of this county's most cherished music was born. The music still plays in this charming Southern city, and tourists will find plenty of ways to learn about it. At Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley, you can tour the home where the King famously made a legendary career and life. The tour is well worth doing twice, since the first time through you'll be overwhelmed by the creative choice of decoration. A trip to Beale Street is a must. You can hear great live music and have a plate of the best barbecue ribs on the planet. The Peabody hotel has a daily duck walk that kids will love: get there early to watch the ducks walk out of the elevator and outside."
