Known globally as the "Home of the Blues & Birthplace of Rock 'n' Roll" – not to mention gospel, jazz, R&B, rap, and soul – Memphis boasts a rich musical heritage. Nearly 20 percent of the first inductees (24 out of 97) in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame hail from within a 100-mile radius of the city.

Memphis is a city of many firsts. It is home to the first African American congregation in the United States and the first African American millionaire. There's a wealth of experiences to enjoy here.

Nearby is Sun Studio, a historic recording venue where legends like Elvis Presley, B.B. King, and Johnny Cash recorded. A tour of Sun Studio will leave you amazed by its rich history.

Beyond its musical attractions, Memphis offers top activities and sights. History enthusiasts can visit the National Civil Rights Museum and explore seven stops on the U.S. Civil Rights Trail.
