Memphis is the largest city in the state of Tennessee, with a population totaling more than 670,000. It is located on the western part of the state on the Mississippi River.

Memphis’s most popular travel destination is Graceland, the mansion Elvis Presley lived in during his later years. While it may shout “tacky tourist trap” visitors that can enjoy the kitsch will enjoy it.

Memphis has much more to offer. It is one of the homes of blues music, and remains an important musical venue for various genres. It is also famous for its BBQ food, and its nightlife in general.

Boat tours on the Mississippi River are available.

Featuring mainly indoors-oriented historical or contemporary attractions.
