Memphis is an interesting and spread out city. It seems to be past its heyday, trying to make a revivial. Here's hoping to see it flourish again someday!

 

There's our beloved Mississippi river.

Graceland of course.

Elvis had an odd billiards room.

This is just a fraction of the awards and milestones the King acheived.

The King in his prime. The '68 Comeback Special.

Rest in peace, Elvis.

We toured Sun Studio, where Elvis broke into the music industry.

Elvis recorded many of his early hits in this room, and on this microphone.

Reunion with an old friend!

Beale street, the music hub of Memphis.

 

Martin Luther King Jr. was shot outside of this motel in 1968. The motel still stands as a memorial, with the Civil Right museum attached.

Stax studios was groundbreaking for its soul music. Memphis truly is a music town.
