Birthplace of Rock 'n' Roll

The largest city on the Mississippi River, Memphis bills itself as both the "Birthplace of Rock" and "Home of the Blues." With such a rich musical heritage, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Elvis Presley chose to live in Memphis during his later years. The city boasts a revitalized downtown, home to a growing population of young entrepreneurs intent on making the area safe and exciting after many decades of abandonment. A major national transportation hub, Memphis boasts one of the world's busiest cargo airports and a well-developed network of highways and railroads, making it one of the easiest cities to travel to from almost anywhere in the country.
