Great shots! Memphis looks beautiful! I really enjoyed the city while I was there.

I hope the Sterick Building gets new life soon. Such a stunner

Never knew Memphis had a nicely built downtown. Hopefully it becomes the next hot place for urban growth if it isn't already.

Great pics! When I first visited Memphis I clicked with it and it reminded me of my hometown, Harrisburg. The rest of TN seemed to really look down on it too, I noticed this right away once I was outside of Memphis and conversations would start about my travels.

Was Graceland worth a visit or was it just creepy?

worth it; this was my 3rd trip (first as an adult). i think you'd really appreciate the modern interior designs. plus there's the car museum, plane, and some other museum parts.

Nice pics of Memphis, rarely seen here! When I think about Memphis I think about Elvis, Beale Street and the movie "the Firm". The downtown seems beautiful, though it seems it hasn't changed much for decades. How come they didn't build any new skyscrapers for so long? But it is a bit of a vintage charm.
