Located on the Mississippi River, Memphis, Tennessee borders Arkansas just west of the river and Mississippi to our south. Not only known for the world's best barbecue, Memphis also has a really great musical background that is sure to be evident when you are in town. I hope to share a little more local flavor about Memphis to help you decide what to see & do should you decide to come & check us out.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great nightlife & great live music
  • Cons:High crime rate
  • In a nutshell:More than just the home of Elvis & Graceland

    Celebrating New Year in a different city sounds like a cool tradition. I'm sure there is way to make it work even when the funds are low. Just wanted to stop by and wish a HAPPY BIRTHDAY-cheers Van
