Memphis Beall St area at night


Recommended Posts

Dh and I will be in Memphis one weeknight soon. He'd like to catch some live music downtown somewhere and thought we should stay overnight in that area. Is it "safe" to walk around at night a few blocks off Beall Street?


We are not uncomfortable with cities like Philly but that's because we know where we can and cannot be on foot at night.


Thanks :)

In Memphis you never know.  Sometimes it feels like we have shootings everyday.  You just never know where or when they will occur.  Sometimes it's on the interstate.  Sometimes it's in neighborhoods.  Sometimes it's at places of business.  There was a drive-by shooting downtown near Peabody Place this weekend that killed a girl about to graduate from high school.  News reports say she was just standing on the sidewalk when someone drove by and opened fire into the group standing there.


ETA:  Generally, it's okay downtown as long as you're in groups,stay in well-lit areas, and are aware of your surroundings, but just know that, sadly, things can and do happen.
