Why Love Memphis?

Hear It From The Locals

“Memphis is a great place to live. There’s a genuinely friendly vibe, a great food scene, and the cost of living is ridiculous – in a good way. It’s also an easy place to get around and the traffic when compared to other major cities, is pretty much a non-issue. And if you’re into music, you can enjoy amazing talent just about any night of the week, if you know where to go.”
– Troy, Memphian

“I love Memphis’ history, which can be seen along its streets, storefronts, and houses, and can be experienced in places like Sun Studio, Stax, and the National Civil Rights Museum. I love Memphis’
food, with all of its Southern traditions, from its famous BBQ to Gus’ Chicken. And most of all, I love its
sound, which can be felt in its music, its food, bars and taverns, streets, sports, and in its people.”
–Mark, Memphian

“We love the Culture and the sense of Community that Memphis has. From the music, the food, the history, and the people – every piece makes it feel like a home.”
– Matt, Memphian

“I love Memphis because it’s a big city, but feels like a small town. Whether it’s supporting small
businesses or local artists, Memphis has an incredible sense of local pride, and we love to show it!”
–Rebeca, Memphian

“I love the energy in Memphis, whether it’s in our creativity or in our loyalty to this city. We,
Memphians, are constantly reshaping this city to meet our innovative dreams. We also release our pride, like a supernova fireball, to support our Memphis favorites (the Tigers & Grizzlies). Try experiencing a Grizzlies game at the Grindhouse (aka FedEx Forum) to let this statement come to life.”
-Minna, Memphian

“I have lived in several cities, states, & countries, and there is no place quite like Memphis. There is a
sense of community that embraces you. It’s a city where I feel I can make a difference. It’s a city where almost everyone has at least one friend in common. You are always greeted positively, in a true Southern fashion, wherever you go. There is no place like HOME!”
– Fara, Memphian
