Elvis is king in this part of Memphis. After all, the Graceland Mansion, regarded as the world’s most famous music mansion, is located here. Annually, the neighborhood hosts Elvis Week, where many thousands of fans converge to commemorate his passing in August. Self-guided tours lead visitors through the hallowed halls of Elvis’ beloved home and grounds throughout the year.

The Stax Museum of American Soul Music is another spot to pay homage to Memphis’ musical roots. This attraction showcases more than 2,000 cultural artifacts, as well as musical and video exhibits.
