On the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River, Memphis is Tennessee's largest city and the commercial and cultural centre of the western part of the Volunteer state and several of its neighbors. The city is a blend of Southern tradition and modern efficiency, where aging cotton warehouses stand in the shadow of sleek new office buildings, and old-fashioned paddle wheelers steam upriver past the city's most striking landmark, the gleaming, stainless-steel Pyramid Arena.
