Beautiful Monument Avenue

A tour of Monument Avenue is a must for any visitor to Richmond. The history of all the monuments is a sight to see. The homes that line the Avenue are beautiful

Monument Avenue has an ambiance all it's own. Have you ever been on any other avenue or road where there are huge monuments in the middle of the road? I find these monuments absolutely fascinating. The monuments and history of them are so worth the walk and or drive.

If you want to know your history, this is indeed the place to visit. Fantastic statuary abounds. It also helps that the architecture of the surrounding houses compliments the look. Definitely worth a visit.

Beautiful monuments honoring heroes of the Civil War. As you ride you also get to see very nice houses reflecting the style of the period when they were built.

A walk down Monument Avenue is a trip back in time. The homes are architecturally fantastic. The monuments are true works of art.
