One piece of advice we always give people is to check out the neighborhood both at day and at night. There are certain places that look fine during the day, but when night falls you want to be nowhere near. Memphis is really odd, some of the streets that I believe to be the safest are less than a half mile from streets that I consider to be the least safest. You just have to do your homework. There are several neighborhoods all throughout Memphis that are fine, but you are wise to be careful.
