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).

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.
