I've lived in the downtown Memphis area for approximately 5 years. It's encircled by Krump Blvd, the Wolf River, Danny Thomas and Poplar. The area is full of diversity, culture and history. Many types of races and nationalities combine together to form the downtown Memphis area. It's full of those who prefer to travel by foot, bus or car. The public transportation is not as good as Chicago or New York, but it will get you where you need to go.

One of the bigger attractions for this area is the University of Memphis. It's long-standing educational base attracts students from all areas, all walks of life including, but not limited to students overseas. There are several fields in which to major that will produce a very lucrative career.

Moreover, Memphis is known for it's food, especially the barbecue. Practically anywhere you travel in the city, you'll be bombarded and overwhelmed by the smells and tastes the food has to offer. As a tourist, you'll definitely want to take advantage of the many food options that Memphis provides. Barbecue is not only popular; the fried fish can hold it's own among many other options.

Additionally, not only is the food great, but the people that live in the neighborhood and surrounding areas really know how to extend southern hospitality. The generosity and genuineness of the people really make you want to unpack your bags and stay if you're a tourist. If you live there, it's enough to make you not want to pack up your bags and go. You'll always find someone willing to help in some type of way if you find yourself in need, and, if they can't help you, they'll find someone who can.

On the down side, Memphis is known for its crime, and the downtown area is no exception. However, it's not so bad that the area is not livable. You just have to be more cautious of your surroundings and, if you notice anything suspicious, contact MPD, the Memphis Police Department. They are here to help and are always alert and on duty.
So, if you're thinking of moving to Memphis, come on down. Memphians are waiting to shower you with their southern hospitality, and the food is ready to be devoured. Again, you might have to be more cautious than other places, but you will definitely not regret your decision to visit Memphis.
