Living in Memphis

Let's take a look at some of the pros and cons of living in Memphis, TN.

Living in Memphis has some definite pros, like the city's rich culture, excellent food, great music, and bustling nightlife. All of that contributes to a strong tourism industry. If munching on ribs and listening to live blues is your thing, this place can't be beat.

But the Blues Capital has some definite drawbacks as well, particularly the high crime and poverty rates, combined with less-than-ideal public schools. These aren't deal breakers for most Memphis residents, but they're definitely something to keep in mind.

Things to do in Memphis

There's never a shortage of things to do in Memphis. For starters, you've got the iconic Beale Street, which serves as hub for music, food, and nightlife. The street is over a mile long and has tons of restaurants and venues to choose from.

From there, you can spend some time learning about the history of blues and rock 'n' roll. Graceland—the former home of Elvis Presley—is a favorite among tourists. You can explore his old home and learn about his life and music.

Then there's Sun Studio, where the first rock 'n' roll single was supposedly recorded back in 1951. During its heyday, the studio hosted everyone from Johnny Cash and B.B. King to Howlin' Wolf and Elvis Presley.

The Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum is another great place to learn about the city's rich music history. Or you can go in a different direction, exploring the National Civil Rights Museum. It's located at the Lorraine Motel, where Martin Luther King was tragically shot and killed in 1968.

For something a little more kid-friendly, try the Memphis Zoo—lions, tigers and bears, oh my. Or take a stroll along the Mississippi River at the Mississippi Greenbelt Park. Overton Park is another great place for a walk or a picnic.

Music lovers will get a kick out of Memphis in May, a whole month of events that comes around every year. You'll be treated to tons of different types of music, week after week.

But Memphis is more than just music. They've also got a booming sports scene. There's the Memphis Grizzlies professional basketball team, University of Memphis Tigers basketball and football, and the Memphis Redbirds minor league baseball team.

And shopaholics can make their way over to Wolfchase Galleria, one of the city's best shopping centers.

Tips for Renting in Memphis

 

If you're considering Memphis as a new place to live, it's helpful to know some of the renters’ rights you're entitled to as a tenant.

In the state of Tennessee, landlords can charge a late fee if your rent is 5 or more days late. The late fee must be less than 10% of your total rent and can't be assessed on a Sunday.
