My job wants me to go on a year long detail there. I'm considering it bc nyc gonna suck my finances dry and it would be nice to have a change of pace
 
the only place I've lived outside of new York was Miami and even that seemed pretty slow after a little while
 
Is there a lot to do??

No. Not much to do at all. Try to live out East or in Olive Branch, TN. I lived in Memphis for 26 years before moving to Nashville. I could not see myself moving back. I visit my family and friends often though, but never want to move back.

No, not a lot to do. 

I'd consider Memphis on the slow side, especially compared to cities like Miami and NYC.  

There are some things to do in Memphis, depending on your interests. It has some nice shopping and restaurant areas, if you know where to look, but the city is mainly known for its history (the civil rights museum). imo downtown memphis (Beale Street) is nice - it has a very busy night life. 

What area are you considering?

You'll save a ton of money bc compared to NYC and MIA, super cheap.

There aren't a ton of things to do but you are 5 hours from ATL and 3.25 from Nashville.

If u stay east as recommended, slower pace.
But some parts of the downtown area are really flourishing... slowly but surely. Fedex Forum, Beale St and Mud Island are some hot spots.

I'm from Memphis. It will be a culture shock for sure but if you're looking for a slower pace, I don't think you will hate it. It'll be different but not terrible different.

Plus TN doesn't have state income tax.

The change of pace would be something to adapt to but if the pay was the same Id go for the purpose of saving up some money alone. The only way that choice would be come hard would be if theres kids and a hubby to think about... if single and childless id be out.
