Came here on July 4 and nearly every store was closed. Such a bummer. I expected more of this district, while it was very quaint and well maintained, there just wasn't much here.

You gotta love a real neighborhood! You can walk to shops and restaurants. I love the vibe during the spring and summer. Several of my favorite restaurants are located here.

IT's a nice neighborhood and gives you a different flavor of Memphis but there's not much happening during the day, very few stores and not worth driving down to. However there are some great restaurants so I would go back to check it out at night.

We drove around this historic district. We really liked the variety of houses. Also would suggest driving down Central Avenue to see the large houses/mansions.

Sort of an artsy, neighborly feel. The regulars recognize and speak to each other, know who owns what, etc. Worth a visit for good food and interesting shops.

I really enjoyed the few days I stayed here in the Pilgrim House right off Cooper and Young. Several nice places around and within walking distance. The neighborhood was a little disappointing and run down. Overall had a great stay. Java Cabana was awesome. :)

This is a great place to visit if you prefer a laid back night out to the ott excesses of the likes of Beale Street. There is a mix of smaller cafe type venues and bars as well as eateries. We went to a brilliant bar that I cannot remember the name of but it was huge, with pool tables... More

This area of Memphis has always had some of the better restaurants, everything from casual inexpensive to more expensive laid back restaurants and the bar food scene. If you want a good people watching area with plenty to eat and drink this is the area for you. Like any other area in a city this busy area is safe if... More
