M EM PHIS AN D M ISSISS IP P I H o me o f t he B lues Maximum participants - 15 Mississippi and Tennessee have teamed up for Travel South International to showcase the birthplace of America’s music and a Southern culture like no other. See the humble birthplace of “The King,” Elvis Presley, in Tupelo before experiencing a true slice of Americana on Oxford’s quaint, eclectic town square. Visit the museum dedicated to another of Mississippi’s “kings” –B.B. King, that is – at the BB King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center in Indianola. And in the heart of The Delta, Clarksdale is still home to the most authentic blues you’ll ever hear. Then arrive in Memphis! Home of the Blues and Birthplace of Rock’n’Roll. Visit Elvis Presley’s Graceland ®, stop by historic Sun Studio, and experience both the Rock’n’ Soul Museum, and the STAX Museum of American Soul Music, not to mention the excitement of world-famous Beale Street in downtown Memphis, known for its live music, Southern cooking, and good times. With the inclusion of Alabama’s “Muscle Shoals Sound” in the four adjacent Alabama cities of Florence, Sheffield, Tuscumbia and Muscle Shoals, you won’t want to miss this education on Southern rhythm and blues.
