What Bert Has To Say About Memphis Metro Area

Sultry, soulful Memphis is an interesting and vivid place, located along the Mississippi River at the Arkansas border. The largest city in Tennessee, Memphis has a history of dramatic highs and lows: antebellum cotton-trading prosperity, Civil War destruction and reconstruction, yellow-fever epidemics, resurgence as a lumber and (again) cotton-trading center, and post–World War II decline. Today the city is on an upswing, thanks to recognition of its unique cultural assets and urban renewal.
