We only visited one street for one evening. We would like to visit again. It's a very vibrant area...even on a week night!

Carytown is a must see for anyone visiting Richmond! It is a strip where everyone goes; full of hip shops, restaurants, theaters and groceries. It is definitely a destination spot. Do not miss it if you are in Richmond!

Being here on business and completely unfamiliar with what Richmond has to offer, I tend to stick with what I know. One of my colleagues who lives in Richmond takes me to new places when I come to town. Twice now we have gone to Carey Town. I like the eclectic vibe, the activity, interesting non-chain dining. This last visit... More

Well, it's hard to say but...the atmosphere that you can see and feel in Carytown is enchanting and simply beautiful! Unwinding a cup of coffee at the italian cafeteria and just wandering around the several vintage shops on Sunday afternoon is awesome!!

I have lived here (Richmond area) for 24 years and have even lived in Carytown. I love everything about Carytown. If you are a visitor to Richmond, you have to visit. It has everything!

I enjoyed the Watermelon Festival and it gave me a chance to pop into some of the stores on Cary Street. Loved the stores and the wide variety that was offered. This is a place that people need to visit and shop and leave the 'Malls' alone from time to time. Nothing better than a shop with personal touches!

Was there with niece and nephew for Carytown Burgers. Very nice ecletic area which made feel like I was in Ann Arbor, MI at Blimpie Burgers. The burgers were really good and enjoyed the atmosphere while having an early dinner that afternoon.

We went to Carytown after visiting Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens. We strolled through the shops and had dinner and drinks. Once you find a parking spot it is easy to walk around. We enjoyed our visit to this historical area!

If you can't find something to your liking here, you didn't search hard enough. Restaurants and coffee shops as well as stores that cater to a great mix of people, and at times are eclectic.
