Roadtrip: Tennessee, Mississippi and then some...

I don't think you have to be a major Elvis fanatic to enjoy the next place we hit: The city of Memphis, TN...Home to Graceland. This is like Disneyland, but switch out the mouse for "The King".

After Graceland, we went to the birthplace of Rock N' Roll, Sun Studio...X marks the spot! Right there, in a tiny little studio where legends have passed through, Elvis recorded for the first time ever, and rock was born from the mix of rhythm, blues and rebellion that the south has to offer.

We then went to the famous Beale St. area of town to hear music and grab a bite to eat, but not before checking out the mighty Mississippi. Here's Vanessa taking a panoramic shot with the iPhone...

The next day, we left TN and headed to the state of Florida. Destin to be exact, but to get there, we had the opportunity to stop in Tupelo, MS, the birthplace of Elvis, so we said 'why not?'.

In Destin, we mainly hit the beach and vegged out, so I won't post any from our stop there, but, check back later, and I'll post photos from our visit to New Orleans, LA.
