hether it’s the South’s next great novel, photography with a fresh perspective, or a funky twist on a pimento cheese recipe, infusing creativity into life is at the heart and soul of Memphis. The city’s history of innovation in music, art, and beyond is enough to feel a spark of creativity at every corner, and today’s Memphis gives those ideas a place to take hold. Creativity collides with culture at every turn, from food to festivals. Sports and outdoor events leave no shortage of opportunities to stay in the action, and world-class museums bring history to life in venues that you won’t want to leave. Whatever piques your interest, Memphis has a place to add fuel to that fire.
you know that “ Did live music was the
No. 1 reason tourists came to Memphis last year? Sure, lots of them visited Graceland and Sun Studio and Stax, too – but I love this fun fact because it demonstrates just how vibrant our music scene is right now. This isn’t our musical legacy – it is new music being created and performed in our city. On any given night, you can check out a national touring act or a local up-and-comer.
