It takes soul to find a rhythm all your own

...to give more than you take, and to change the world around you. It takes soul to be a Memphian. We are a city of doers, dreamers and believers. That’s what drives this unstoppable city. For those who change the world – welcome home.

We are Memphis.
Welcome to our city of soul. Don’t forget to bring yours.



Home to the original change makers of Memphis, South Memphis is where true soul thrives.


The perfect home for millennials and those seeking the exciting parts of life. Central Memphis has everything to build the life you want, get involved, and live out loud.


The history of North Memphis is one of change. From bustling industries to times of struggle, to a new era of people coming together to form communities in which they could thrive.


Primarily outside of the "loop" eastern Memphis includes the Hickory Hill and East Memphis areas. Both are home to major businesses and are easily accessible through the interstate system. East Memphis offers suburban style living with a shorter commute into the city and downtown.


Located in the greater Shelby County region, 6 municipalities ring Memphis: Bartlett, Germantown, Arlington, Millington, Collierville, and Lakeland. Access to these cities and towns is easy using the 385-highway system.
