Memphis, TennesseeMemphis - Central Station
Pay homage to rock and roll royalty at Elvis’ Graceland before making tracks to Sun Studio, where the King and scores of other music legends recorded their hits. Grab some barbeque ribs at the Rendezvous then hit Beale Street and the other king’s place – B.B. King’s Blues Club, that is.
For sobering reminders of the struggle for equality and justice, the National Civil Rights Museum beckons and enlightens.
New Orleans, LouisianaNew Orleans - Union Passenger Terminal
Before you hit Bourbon Street, hit the Big Easy’s other big shots, like the National World War II Museum where the sights, sounds and memories of the Greatest Generation remind us that freedom is not free. Meander along the shady streets of the elegant Garden District.
Then head back to French Quarter for shopping, dining and world-class jazz that calls out from every open door and invites you in.
