Take a trip in your Memphis car rental about 12 miles south of downtown for visit to Elvis Presley's former estate. You'll take a guided tour of his elaborate mansion, which he bought at the age of 22 in the late 1950s. Look around to find a jungle room, which has an indoor waterfall and served as the musician's recording studio for many of his albums. You'll also get a glimpse into the luxury of King of Rock 'n' Roll's lifestyle when you browse through the adjoining auto museum. Then, head outside to see the stable and the grounds' four horses - Max, Tucker, Candy and Bandit - as well as Elvis' burial ground. Tickets start at $20 for adults for this tour, but children get in at lower rates.
Eat on the cheap
Barbeque is big in Memphis, and fortunately there are plenty of establishments offering down-home delights at affordable prices. Drive a Memphis car rental over to Payne's for some of the tangiest and messiest barbecued pork sandwich in town with a side of beans and chips. Or stop by Tom's Bar-B-Q and Deli for a generously sized pork sandwich platter at an affordable price.
