Known as “America’s Distribution Center,” Memphis has one of the United State’s largest inland ports. It is home to FedEx’s national headquarters. Memphis’ largest industry lies in the healthcare industry, and medical education and various biomedical research bring over $5 billion a year to the local economy. There are must-see attractions for first-timers in the city, such as the landmarks that are associated with the music legends such as Graceland, Elvis Presley’s home. No matter what your age and interests you have, there are plenty of things to do in the city. Keep in mind that the best time to visit is from April to June. Famous for its melt-in-your-mouth barbecues, one can spend their time hopping from one museum to another historic site, and stopping only for a barbecue can leave happy.
