Many Memphis vacation packages include visiting Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley. You'll get to tour his home, see various memorabilia from his life, and pay your respects at his burial place. Book a car rental in Memphis and travel downtown to view the mighty Mississippi River on Mud Island. There you can listen to music, ride paddle boats, or learn about the path the river takes from Minnesota to Louisiana. History buffs will love visiting the grounds of the Elmwood Cemetery -- the resting place of hundreds of Confederate soldiers and the Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest. Other famous people buried there include the author Shelby Foote, the outlaw Kit Dalton, a famous madam Annie Cook, and many others. Another must-see destination in Memphis is the Beale Street Historic District where you will find many clubs including B.B. King's Blues Club.
Festivals and Events
Memphis vacations wouldn't be complete without a visit to the month-long Memphis in May International Festival or the Memphis Music & Heritage Festival held for two days in September. Both of these annual events feature well-known musicians and bands. If you're a die hard Elvis fan, then you won't want to miss Elvis Week. It's held each year during the 10 days surrounding Elvis Presleys' birthday in August and draws Elvis fans from near and far.
