The update the district has been given over the last few years is wonderful. We love to go and just walk around and enjoy the new business' and try the new restaurants.

I love the cooper-young district. So beautiful and have many one-of-a-kind shops, restuarants and community outreach centers like OUT Memphis which was formerly known as LGBT Memphis. Plenty of history in a vibrant neighborhood.

in last several years the area has so improved - tons of great places to eat, local artists, convenient parking. Locals know it well and if you are travelling to Memphis - make sure you stop and see the area.
