Memphis Hotels & Holidays
Overlooking the Mississippi River, modern day Memphis is a blend of slick skyscrapers and cotton warehouses, with old paddle boats chugging on the water. Famous for its music heritage, you can worship at the altar of Elvis and Johnny Cash, and then check out new music in a local dive bar. Top attractions include the National Civil Rights Museum, on the site where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968, or the Memphis Music Hall of Fame Museum. Memphis is also home of the Barbecue, with scores of restaurants serving up sticky plates of slow-cooked pork.
