If one happens to be a fan of classic rock 'n roll or music history in general, I would enthusiastically recommend a visit to Sun Studio in Memphis, Tennessee.
It is still a working studio. Musicians, including current stars, come in at night to record. During the day, the studio is open for tours.
I posted about the tour here. The photos posted about the tour hardly scratched the surface.
