I was surprised by how much I loved this place! There is so much history and culture. There were a few places that I felt a little unsafe, but the music is amazing and the food is hard to beat!

Memphis is a great American city, but it has its flaws. Suffering from blight, the city may seem off-putting to some, but there are truly great cultural attractions here that help showcase American culture.

There is lots to explore. From the civil rights museum to beale street you will always have something to see and experience. Be ready to cry and sing all in same day.

Memphis can either be a really awesome,terrible,fun, boring, informative, safe, or scary place 2 visit. All depends on your reason 4 being there, your intentions, what your interest are, how easily you scare, & what part of Memphis that ya accidentally end up in when you get all turned around & lost. They do offer allot of different kinds of entertainment for people of all ages & sexes. They have specialist & hospitals for all illnesses & diseases. There's plenty of Hookers that will do anything for anyone. &, If a 'Buzz' is what your craving. The Dealers aren't very discreet. You'll have no problem at all spotting them. I'm surprised that they don't advertise in the Yellow Pages & hand out coupons. However, if you get paranoid w/yur 'tweak', I wouldn't really advise ya 2 leave that Hotel room. Because my husband & I got a room Thur. night. Cuz, I had 2 be at the hospital 5 AM Fri. 4 surgery. We passed somewhere between 15 & 25 Cop Cars. All of them w/their lights/sirens justa blazing. I was very sober. &, I just have 2 tell ya that that was enough 2 give me a good scare. Make me wanna go hide in the nearest place I could find. Don't have a clue what was going on or what they were doing. But, they looked pretty serious. Like they meant business. Lol
