About Memphis...and the Mid-South
Memphis Chosen as "Dream Town"
Memphis, TN, was selected by AARP as one of five "great places
to retire" (2006). They hired a team of researchers to come up with the
cheapest states to live in as a retiree, based on income, property, and
sales taxes...then factored in weather, recreational opportunities, and
livability (access to health care and transportation).
Whether you're just starting out, or retiring...Memphis is a great place to live!

Did you know... that when Elvis Presley came back home after a stint in the Army,
he was asked what he missed about Memphis? Elvis said “Everything.” That quote is
etched on one of the windows at the historic Peabody Hotel in downtown Memphis.
