Fabulous Music City is renowned as the home of Country. Uncover its music history and culture at one of the many attractions such as the Ryman Auditorium and Johnny Cash Museum. In the evening soak up classic country music at the Grand Ole Opry or dance the night away along Broadway’s honky tonks.
Day 4 Nashville to Florence
Pick up your car and head south to Alabama and base yourself in the pretty riverside town of Florence, an ideal place to explore ‘The Shoals’ area from.
Day 5 Muscle Shoals
Tour the FAME Recording Studio in Muscle Shoals where icons such Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding and Etta James recorded. Nearby in Tuscumbia is the Alabama Music Hall of Fame where you’ll find memorabilia from Alabamians such as Lionel Richie and Nat King Cole.
Day 6 Florence to Tupelo
Cross in to Mississippi and to the small town of Tupelo, famous for being the birth place of Elvis Presley. Visit the tiny two room house where Elvis grew up and learn of his humble beginnings before he became the King of Rock'n'Roll!
Day 7 Tupelo to The Delta
Travel on to charming Greenwood in the Mississippi Delta. The Blues was born in the Delta and the area is home to numerous sites on the Mississippi Blues Trail. The excellent, interactive Grammy Museum in Cleveland is well worth a visit and for some live music search out an authentic juke joint or blues bar.
Day 8 The Delta to Memphis
Head up Highway 61, known as the Blues Highway and arrive in legendary Memphis: birthplace of Rock'n'Roll.
Days 9-11 Memphis
Elvis fans will of course want to visit his mansion, Graceland as well as Sun Studios where Elvis laid down his first track. Along with Rock'n'Roll the city is legendary for its soul music so make sure to check out the Stax Museum of Soul and the Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum. Dine on pulled pork and smoked ribs at a classic barbecue joint before enjoying the cool night life and live music along iconic Beale Street.
