Cordova is the fastest growing area of Shelby County, Tennessee and it is no surprise that much of the community is made up of families. Fortunately, there is no shortage of fun things for the whole family to do in Cordova. Here are some of the best.
If you're looking for something to do with the kids, the Cordova Community Center has plenty. They offer sports, classes, and even a museum with a focus on the town's history.
Malco is the Mid-South largest movie theater chain and they have one location in Cordova. The Cordova Cinema shows first-run movies and provides all the standard comforts like stadium seating, cup holders, and an expanded concession menu.
If an all-you-can-eat pizza buffet isn't enough to entice your family, what about video games, bumper cars, miniature golf, go-karts, and prizes? Incredible Pizza offers all of that and more for the whole family.
Cordova Bowling Center offers something for the whole family including youth and adult leagues, birthday parties, glow in the dark bowling, open bowling, a snack bar, video games, and more.
Old Cordova Railroad Train Dept
Address8593 Macon Rd, Cordova, TN 38018-6102, USA
Now mostly just a stop on the Greenline, the historic Old Cordova Railroad Train Depot was one of many small stops along the railroad that ran through Chattanooga, Nashville, Memphis, and St. Louis. It went out of service in 2002. Stop and take a photo at the cute yellow building.
Skating is an activity loved by people of all ages -- toddlers, teens, and even adults. Cordova Skating Center (also referred to as Cordova Skateland) provides an up-to-date rink, skate shop, concessions, games, and special events.
While the Visitor Center address may be technically in Memphis, most locals consider the sprawling Shelby Farms Park to be in the Cordova area. Enjoy miles of walking and biking trails, multiple ponds, horseback riding, an adventure ropes course, canoe and kayak rentals, plus a restaurant and event center.
Cordova International Farmer's Market
Attention foodies and grocery store junkies: the Cordova International Farmer's Market is a must-see. One might not think to see such a variety of Asian, Middle-Eastern, Hispanic and other international food items in the suburbs, but the CIFM has it all.
The store is clean and features an extensive produce section, fresh and live seafood (lobster, crab, fish), spices, roots, and dry goods all at great prices.
