A city on the turn around from a few decades of bad karma and even worse government. Granted there are still some less than intelligent people running things, but the city is definitely changing for the better. The crime rate is down, though there are still some neighborhoods to avoid...as in every city. There are still some problems but come by in May for some storms, great music, great food, and a great time.
Memphis is a town on the turn around.
Memphis in May, don't drown in Tom Lee Park when it rains at Musicfest.
