Find some affordable old-school cool with this dreamy 1923 bungalow with gorgeous hardwood floors and an updated kitchen and bathrooms (hello, claw-foot tub!). Then venture out into Memphis to enjoy the retro vibe of Elvis’s iconic mansion Graceland; blues clubs on Beale Street; and Sun Studios, where legends like Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis recorded. On your way home, hit Payne’s Bar-B-Q, known around town since 1972 for serving one of the best chopped pork sandwiches in the country.
