Memphis: A city of striking combinations and boundless creativity. A place whose very soul was forged by a powerful convergence of passion, ideals, cultures and opportunity.

Where big city energy has a hometown feel, do-it-yourself enterprise shows a collaborative spirit, and neighborhood pride meets metropolitan sophistication.

A city whose fierce independence is paired with a strong sense of community, and innovative edge finds an unmatched social commitment and generosity.

Memphis is filled with unexpected fusions: global commerce and local start-ups, high culture and outdoor adventure, soul food and haute cuisine, world-class infrastructure and spectacular green-and blue- ways, rich heritage and forward thinking, and, of course, all the many forms of music born and still being recorded here, which create a wholly original Memphis sound.

The magic of Memphis? It’s in the mix. Here, you can create your own, one-of-a-kind experiences -- and make your own, unique mark on the world.

Not only do we get it, but the world does too. Many of our attractions were voted number one in USA Today’s  10 Best lists including Graceland, National Civil Rights Museum, Memphis Grizzlies, and the Memphis in May International Festival. Also in the top 5 were Sun Studio and Stax Museum of American Soul Music.
