In the late 1800's and early 1900's, this Victorian neighborhood was one of the most well-to-do residential areas in the city; but during much of the 20th century, the houses fell into disrepair. Fortunately, the Cooper-Young district is making a big comeback as one of Memphis' trendiest entertainment and shopping districts. Favoring creative types, the area is now full of fun and funky options, from coffee houses to innovative casual restaurants and of course, locally owned shops. It's also still worth your while to cruise around and take in the ornate Victorian architecture, much of which has been restored. Note that parking can be tough on evenings and weekends.

- Best for Shopping Centers Because: It's SO Memphis, with vintage record and book stores, crafty artisan galleries and workshops, and a real melting pot of people.
