    Living in Memphis, TN

    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, TN

    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.
