We have heard all manner of remarks about the safety of tourists in downtown Memphis. "Don't walk the streets downtown after dark!" "Gus's fried chicken is in a BAD Section of town." "The gang problem is awful east of downtown, don't leave your car." "Graceland is one place you don't want to be when the sun sets." And then the exact opposite for all of the above. Is there any way of getting an honest assessment of the problems we might, or might not be facing? My wife is already in a panic and doesn't want to walk from the hotel to Charles Vergos and that less than half a mile. Please help.
