When first moving to Washington, D.C., I didn't know many people outside of the office. InterNations has changed that with some exciting events.
Living in Memphis
Memphis, Tennessee is the third largest city in the Southeastern United States. It is also the twentieth largest city in the United States overall, with a population of 670,000 in 2012. Known as "The River City", it is possibly best known for the wealth of famous musicians who have lived there, most notably Elvis Presley whose Memphis home Graceland is still a major tourist attraction in the city, drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. Other notable residents of musical fame have included Johnny Cash, Al Greenwood, Aretha Franklin and most recently, Justin Timberlake. Living in Memphis offers more than just interesting museums and historical sites, however, the city also has a high acreage of parkland and forest for expats in Memphis to explore. It is home to one of the largest urban parks in the whole of the United States.

Working in Memphis
Three fortune 500 companies have bases in Memphis; AutoZone, International Paper and FedEx – all of whom are significant employers in the city. Memphis’ central location, and excellent transport links, both by road and rail have seen the city become a hub of business development and trade. The strong musical history in the city has led to a booming tourist industry, and also a continued legacy of music production in the studios and performance halls of Memphis. The film industry in Memphis has also expanded hugely in recent years, with many major motion pictures being filmed there, such as The Firm, Walk the Line and Great Balls of Fire!
