Review of Memphis, Tennessee

Not for me
Star Rating - 10/27/2019
Didn't like it. People are not very friendly, which is surprising, since it's a Southern city. Sorta. There were signs everywhere that said "Be Nice, Or Leave". Great idea, but apparently most people never read them. LOTS of crime. Wow. Beale St's not so much. Very small. You can always go to some hotel and watch a bunch of ducks walk on a red carpet if that's your idea of entertainment. The river is right downtown, which is cool. Good music scene. Not like New Orleans, but there's live music to be heard. After you leave downtown, it's either the hood or the 'burbs. If you like BBQ, you'll like the food. Grits!

I agree wholeheartedly. I just moved back North after two years. Whatever idyllic notions I had about the South and its Southern charm were replaced with the reality of the ramifications of abject poverty.
