More and more, I find myself celebrating special times out in Cooper Young.

Enjoyed my first time to this quiant little area packed full of shops, restaraunts, and bars. Historic area but clean and well maintained. I could spend a whole Saturday just walking and browsing the area. They even have a cute little kangaroo shuttle bus to take you from one end of town to the other.

Yes there are a lot of restaurants, but how many restaurants can you visit in a day? Only came across one shop that was open & then there was nothing.

I love the Cooper-Young area so much that I got a job here. There is so much culture and personality in one location! Be sure to people watch as you dine on Tappas or sip cocktails. Also attend cooper young festival in September!

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.
