Some good replies already. I had a very enjoyable trip there a few years ago. So much music history! A city with a soundtrack. - Sun Studios: still set up like it was when Elvis, Johnny Cash, and everyone recorded there. - Graceland: Must-see, even if you are not an Elvis fan. - Stax Museum of American Soul Music: fantastic, loved it! - Memphis Rock and Soul Museum: also excellent. - National Civil Rights Museum: unexpectedly excellent. Lorraine Motel where MLK was shot, and the rooming house across the street where the shooter was. - Beale Street: kinda like Bourbon Street in NOLA, but with live blues music in every bar - Gibson Guitar Factory: sadly, I heard this has now been closed.
