The birthplace of rock'n'rock, we could say about Sun Studio, which has become famous for the the King of rock'n'roll, Elvis Presley, who first sung and recorded his songs here.

The tours last only one and a half hours but are interesting and informative for the ones who are also knowledgeable about music and for those who aren't. A must-see!

You should also take advantage of the free bus tours to and from Graceland so that you can see something else too while you're in Memphis.

Address:
706 Union Ave, Memphis, TN 38103, USA

Price:
$12, for children free.

Opening Hours:
10:00am-6:00pm every day.
