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.

Enjoyed walking down West Cary Street, interesting shops and plenty of places to eat. Needed more time, this could be an all day outing.

The area boosts some of best shops and restaurants. Each spot has it's own charm and character. Beware, parking is tough and prices are high in most shops and restaurants.

Carytown offers restaurants cafes, bookstores, boutiques, espresso shops and bars. It's a great place to go for lunch, for dinner, for coffee, and for shopping. It's strollable, too. The only dilemma is parking, which we found to be crowded. On the plus side, you can park just about anywhere along the street and there will be good things to see... More
