Just a fun place/area to walk around and look into different shops, enjoy people watching and relax. Plenty of places to browse and to eat. Parking is prime - even on off hours but I lucked out and got a great spot.

My favorite place to shop in Richmond. There are quite a few boutiques selling a variety of different types of items along this quaint street. A must see in Richmond.

Went through Carytown the last night of my trip dropping my don off at University of Richmond. What a fun place! Restaurants/coffee shops/pubs galore. Something for everyone. Will definitely spend time there on my next visit.

A little Arty for me, but worth a stroll and a lunch maybe. If you like your shops this area will certainly deliver the smaller and quainter type.

Nothing really special about this place. A lot of salons and that type of thing. Worth driving through, but unless you want to stop for a meal, just drive through it.

Terrific section of Richmond that is easily seen by walking. With a large variety of shops & excellent restaurants there's plenty to see and do. Don't miss the theatre, the candy store, and the ice cream spots.

Carytown is a place I frequent weekly, almost every weekend and always when I have visitors Boutiques, sure there are a few and they have a loyal following (note they carry artistic clothing, so you will not find racks of t shirts or shorts) there are also some of the best organized second hand shops of the area, even one...

There are many good restaurants and fun shops. Go to the Byrd movie theater on Saturday night. We have visited Richmond several times and always try to eat someplace in Carytown.
