Get out of town with these interesting Nashville side-trips: Cowan Railroad Museum (in Cowan), Franklin (Carnton, Carter House, & more) and Mountain Goat Trail (in Sewanee). The adventure continues: see a show at Grand Ole Opry, examine the collection at Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and hike along Bowie Nature Park.

The largest city on the Mississippi River, Memphis bills itself as both the "Birthplace of Rock" and "Home of the Blues." With such a rich musical heritage, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Elvis Presley chose to live in Memphis during his later years.
National Civil Rights Museum - Lorraine Motel and Hampson Museum State Park are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of the city life by going to Pinson Mounds State Park and Craighead Forest Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Tunica (Horseshoe Tunica & Blues and Legends Hall of Fame), Jackson (International Rock-A-Billy Hall of Fame, Jackson Bowling & Family Fun, & more) and Parkin Archeological State Park (in Parkin). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Sun Studio, stop by Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid, make a trip to The Peabody Ducks, and look for all kinds of wild species at Forrest L Wood Crowley's Ridge Nature Center.
