On the western shore of the Mississippi River, West Memphis is a residential community in Arkansas. The river, which also serves as the state border, separates West Memphis from the much larger city of Memphis in Tennessee. Although homes for rent in West Memphis are convenient for commuting just across the bridge into Memphis, it isn't a community stuck in the larger city's shadow. West Memphis, near Proctor and Marion, is much more suburban than its sister city. West Memphis is composed mainly of residential neighborhoods as well as Meadowbrook Country Club and parks like Matthews Park and Worthington Park.
West Memphis gives families the opportunity to live in a small city on the banks of one of the largest rivers in the world. Also, Memphis is just a stone's throw away for families looking to spend a day in the major Tennessee city.
