Strickland is now challenging the census count. Says population should have increased almost 16k instead of decreasing.

I hope they can change that. That would be great, especially if you consider we deannexed some areas in that time frame,  which would mean gained more actually.

Good. If it will change the boring negative narrative we've always heard of Memphis losing people, more power to Strickland.

An article from the NBJ today

A little from the article.

 

Condé Nast Traveler names Memphis as one of 23 places in world for tourists to visit in 2023

Condé Nast Traveler named Memphis one of the global “23 Best Places to Go in 2023” and “23 Best Places to Go in the U.S. in 2023.”

“Nashville claims a lot of national buzz, but the city of Memphis has been quietly reshaping itself to be the hottest destination in Tennessee,” Kelsey Ogletree wrote in the Conde’ Nast Traveler piece. “Over the past decade, its downtown has invested billions in revitalization projects — and now, visitors can begin reaping the benefits.”

Among the highlights from the publications and reasons why Memphis was among the listed as a potential global and domestic travel destination next year included the $61 million redesigned Tom Lee Park, expected to be completed in mid-2023; and the 2022 opening of hotel properties such as the $41 million, 136-room Caption by Hyatt at One Beale — which was the first Caption built in the U.S. and the world — and the $24 million, 106-room Memphian at Overton Square.

This isn’t Memphis' first time receiving prominent recognition as a tourist destination.

The city was previously touted in Time magazine’s “World’s Greatest Places” in 2021, Forbes’ “25 Best Places to visit in 2020,” Frommer’s Best Places to Go” in 2019, and Fodor’s “Go List” in 2018.

I wonder how much someone had to pay in order to get Memphis on that list?  I kid, I kid! But really nice recognition.

We have made a few travel lists like this in the past couple of years, people that come here like the authenticity, culture and music.  The city is nice all we really need is some sort of amusement park or waterpark and we have all facets of entertainment covered.
