  • Cooper Young area is an awesome place to visit! There is a variety of things to do. Great restaurants and bars. Most everyone is pretty friendly around there. The atmosphere is laid-back.
  • Fine neighborhood comprised of good hard working people. Many great shops and restaurants, churches, schools and community organizations. Check out the farmer's market on Saturdays (spring through summer)in the parking lot of First Congratulational Church. The variety of wonderful restaurants should cover most taste buds. Don't miss Burke's Book Store, the best in Memphis.
