Memphis

Like its Tennessee cousin to the east, Memphis has been a hotspot for musicians for at least 50 years, playing a major role in the careers of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Al Green and Justin Timberlake. Beale Street is a popular destination for music lovers, as it is home to many bars, clubs, studios and concert venues of all music types, but especially blues. Barbeque is another Memphis institution – so much so that the city is home to its very own Championship Barbeque Cooking Contest, the largest pork barbequing contest in the world. For history lovers, the National Civil Rights Museum is located near the Lorraine Motel where Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. Memphis is also home to the Peabody Hotel, which has its very own family of ducks in residence.
