Memphis, perched atop high bluffs overlooking the mighty Mississippi River, is a major city and the hub for the Mid-South region. With a location that has been an important focal point of settlement and trade for hundreds of years, modern Memphis is the largest city in Tennessee. Once a base for the steamboats that used to traverse the Mississippi, Memphis remains a transport powerhouse thanks to the presence of FedEx. Their "Super Hub" at the Memphis International Airport is the second largest center of cargo operations in the world.
The city is famous for its role in developing the unique music culture of the Mississippi Delta region. The "blues" genre became a cultural phenomenon in Memphis, and visitors can follow in the footsteps of legends like B.B. King as they stroll Beale Street. Just as important to the city’s cultural legacy is its food, with barbecue taking center stage. There are dozens of barbecue joints across Memphis and the region, with many participating in the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest held here each year.

The Mississippi River still plays a crucial role in the city’s economy, with the port at Memphis ranking as the second-busiest on the entire river.
