ShermansTravel experts do the legwork – literally – to walk you through the neighborhoods and regions in your destination. From local geography to notable landmarks to the hotel and restaurant meccas, we detail which areas to scope out during your stay and which spots aren’t worth the cab fare.

Memphis Neighborhoods


Built on the banks of the Mississippi River, the entertainment district surrounding Beale Street is the oldest part, and the heart of, the city.


Constructed largely before zoning laws, Midtown is an intriguing mix of old and new, with a diverse population, including a large gay community. Trendy eateries, shops, and parks abound.

Victorian Village

The striking Victorian mansions along Adams Avenue were built in the 1800s by the city’s elite. Now restored, they're on the National Register of Historic Places.

East Memphis

High rises, enormous homes, and shopping centers dominate Memphis’ most affluent neighborhood. Find whatever you need in the stores and malls of busy Poplar Avenue.

Mud Island

Spend a day exploring Mud Island (actually a peninsula), home to the Mississippi River Park, Mississippi Museum, and the "new urbanism" community of Harbor Town.
