Introduction

Memphis is a city on the banks of the Mississippi River famously associated with two American icons - civil rights leader Dr Martin Luther King Jr, and Elvis Presley.

The city celebrates its blues legacy in the many nightclubs and saloons and even on the streets. Elvis Presley's former Graceland estate is the clear highlight for many visitors, with more than 700,000 visiting each year.

Sun Studio is another favourite. Famous musicians from across the world have come to this studio founded by Sam Philips that helped launch the careers of Elvis, Johnny Cash and others.
