City Guide for Apartments in Memphis

If you’re looking for a city with southern charm, a historic background, and some of the best BBQ around, Memphis is the place for you. Founded as a planned city by a group of investors – including President Andrew Jackson – Memphis was a key southern city during the Civil War and later the site of many civil rights movements. Today, it’s a thriving metropolis that residents love for its great food, music, and more.

As the home to the National Civil Rights Museum (housed at the site of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination), the city recognizes its part in American history, including music history. Elvis Presley lived here, and many would say Rock ’n Roll music was born here. Visit Graceland to immerse yourself in the world of Elvis, or take a tour of the Rock N’ Soul Museum. Afterward, order some ribs at one of Memphis’ many renowned barbecue restaurants. Sports is also a big part of Memphis culture, as the Grizzlies are the city’s beloved NBA team.

With so much culture and entertainment, it’s no wonder that Memphis attracts college students. There are several universities in the city, the most major institutions being Rhodes College and the University of Memphis. There are many cheap apartments near UofM, especially low-rent, studio apartments. Most of these Memphis apartments are located in the University District neighborhood, an area that caters mostly to young students but is a popular spot because of its great restaurants and bars as well.

Working professionals also love this city. The average commute time is 24 minutes, which is less than the national average. You can easily get from the eastern outskirts to downtown in no time. Though most people drive over walking and biking, getting to places by foot within neighborhoods is a breeze.

Apartment finders praise the city for its low cost of living and ease of finding an apartment in Memphis that fits their needs. If you’re looking for a beautiful luxury apartment, check out the Downtown area, where you’ll be in the center of it all. This is a popular neighborhood for young professionals because of its proximity to the office. Harbor Town is another upscale neighborhood due to its scenic location on the Mississippi River. Though it’s close to the hustle and bustle of downtown, Harbor Town is much quieter and offers a slower pace of living. If you really want a quiet community, take your apartment search to East Memphis, where you’ll find more suburban neighborhoods as well as miles of biking and walking paths for the more active types.
