Moving to West Memphis
Even though West Memphis is part of the Memphis metropolitan area of Tennessee, this small town is actually located on the other side of the Mississippi River in Arkansas. With a population of 24,860 people, it is by far the largest city in Crittenden County. Founded in 1910, this area was originally started as a logging camp known as Bragg’s Mill and has since turned into a small, bustling city with a fun culture.
Are you relocating to West Memphis? Big League Movers is a 5-star rated moving company that has built its reputation around providing major league service to every customer we help.

Although West Memphis covers about 29 square miles, a large portion of that includes open land, as well as the local airport. But you still have some great neighborhoods to choose from such as the community of Meadowbrook. It is home to the Meadowbrook Country Club, which is complete with tennis courts, swimming pools, and a beautiful golf course. Be sure to also check out Avondale on the north side of town and Holiday, which is right next to where the I-40 and I-55 connect.
One of the best things to do when you first get to the city is to stop by the West Memphis Welcome Center, where you can learn everything you need to know about the area. Locals in this town love to visit Southland Gaming and Racing for its casino, video slot machines, and more than 400 greyhound races every year. You’ll also be able to find plenty of enjoyable things to do in Memphis across the river for both kids and adults.
For children in the area, West Memphis has its own school district that includes five elementary schools such as Richland Elementary and Bragg Elementary. Also part of the district are West Junior High School and West Memphis High for teen students. Any parents who are interested in a Christian education can choose between West Memphis Christian School and Crittenden Pentecostal Academy.
While the local school district and Southland Gaming and Racing host the most jobs in town, it’s not uncommon for local workers to commute for only 15-20 minutes to their positions in Memphis, TN as well. Large employers like FedEx and the Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare Hospital provide many opportunities for jobs in the big city.
Weather in West Memphis rarely goes below freezing even at the coldest points in winter, which means snow is a rare occurrence. Though rainy seasons can bring as much as 50 inches of precipitation per year. Winter temperatures average between 30°F at the lowest and highs in the low 60s. Summers bring humidity, but seldom reach the 90s making it comfortable for most of the year.
