Why Memphis?

riverboat on the Mississippi RiverMemphis is a city like no other. Nestled on the banks of the Mississippi River, Memphis is where starving actor Danny Thomas built a children’s hospital (St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has helped increase the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80%); Fred Smith started a small delivery service (FedEx now generates $60 billion dollars a year); the King of Rock ‘n Roll chose to live (Elvis’ Graceland sees 600,000+ visitors each year); and where you’ll find USA Today’s most iconic street (Beale Street has attracted fans from all over the world since the 1860s).  And, we were recently named one of the Best Places to Go in 2019 by Frommer's.

More city points of pride:

Memphis has been the inspiration for over 1,000 songs. We’re pretty proud of our town and think once you experience Memphis, you will be, too.
