Welcome to Downtown Memphis
Experience the emerging “new” Memphis as block after block of older buildings are either revamped or leveled to make room for the growth and development of an emerging new face we all know as Downtown. From the mighty Mississippi river East to the University of Tennessee Medical Center, from the northern area known as the Pinch District to the National Civil Rights Museum on the South side, you will find new businesses, shops, restaurants, and attractions coming to life in the greater downtown area!
The city of Memphis has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on major projects such as the FedEx Forum, Memphis Convention Center, Riverside drive, and the newly expanded Trolley system. New attractions, hotels, restaurants, and shopping area are opening right along side the municipal efforts to offer a dynamic and vibrant downtown area for all to enjoy.
Historic Beale Street, Peabody Place, The Cannon Center for Performing Arts, beautiful Autozone Park (home to our Redbirds baseball team), and FedEx Forum (Home to the Grizzlies and U. of M. basketball teams) are but a part of the downtown area.
How can you come and leave Memphis without checking out all there is to offer in the “city on the move” known as the Bluff City or River City or Home of the Blues and Birthplace of Rock & Roll—all names fit nicely as we proudly say, come for a visit, stay for a lifetime in Memphis! ENJOY!
