Why Memphis?

Memphis is a truly incredible town with so much to offer! Catch dinner at the iconic Majestic Grille before taking in a Grizzlies NBA game at the FedEx Forum. Learn the history of Memphis music at Elvis Presley’s Graceland, Stax Records, and Sun Studio. Soak in the sun at Shelby Farms or the Big River Crossing. Enjoy shopping at our Bass Pro Shop, housed in the tenth-tallest pyramid in the world, then explore the nightlife on historic Beale Street.

Those are just a few reasons Memphis was named one of Condé Nast Traveler’s 23 Best Places to Go in 2023.

But most of all, Memphis is the healthcare hub of the Mid-South's large and diverse population.
