Memphis, Tennessee | Community Overview
Memphis is an Experience for the Soul
It’s the Birthplace of Rock ‘n’ Roll, the Home of the Blues and the starting point of soul. Music legends including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, B.B. King, W.C. Handy and Otis Redding made their marks on Memphis, where you can hear their influences today. To complete the “musical medley,” visit Graceland, Sun Studio, the Stax Museum of American Soul Music and the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum. At night, take a walk down Beale Street and listen to the live music Memphis makes today.
Eating in Memphis is an experience for the soul, not just the stomach. Our specialty may be BARBECUE (Memphis is home to more than 100 barbecue joints) but, make no bones about it, dining out here doesn’t stop there. Memphis restaurants serve soul food, steak, sushi and everything in between: juicy burgers, authentic Italian and Mexican, and international cuisine by award-winning chefs. Your taste buds will thank you for trying them all.
Whether Downtown, Mid-Town, or Germantown is more your style you will have your choice of multiple family friendly communities with access to excellent restaurants, major theater productions, private and public schools, upscale shopping, and professional sports.
