Memphis, Tennessee, hometown of delicious BBQ, an immeasurable arts & culture scene, and even the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis!

Here are 6 Memphis suburbs you’ll love that will give you that everything you’re looking for in a new residence:
Located just about 30 minutes from the heart of downtown Memphis, Collierville is one of its larger suburbs just east of the big city.
