My favorite place in Richmond! Monument Avenue is unique to this beautiful city and deserves a leisurely stroll to full appreciate the architecture and southern ambiance. If you haven't visited Monument Avenue, you haven't experienced Richmond.

A very well planned part of Richmond. The architecture is great to look at and the monuments are nice. Best known for the VMFA and VHS, entry to both of which are free! Carytown is close too.

In March I did the Monument Avenue 10K so I really had a chance to enjoy the Avenue. Seeing all the famous statues while walking was quite fun!

We only had time for a drive up and down Monument Avenue. I hope to get back another time for more exploration. This is a fabulous street for monuments and for architecture.

The monuments are so impressive but there is just no way to see them up close because of traffic and no parking. Maybe visit early morning but later in the day with everyone buzzing by i just couldn't enjoy them fully.

Great place for a walk with statues of the Civil War greats with the plus of seeing some superb houses which show perfectly the architecture of Richmond.

What a great event. I had such a great time with 26,000 of my closest friends. We took public transport to side step parking issues. You cannot help the cold weather but the even was great and the Monuments were all smiling back at us.

Every year we meander down this glorious ave and look at the fancy decorations. Amazing, artsy, and another A word. Oh yeah, and there are statues.

Fantastic sculptures down this boulevard. While you can drive it, best would be to try and find a parking spot and walk for awhile so you can enjoy the beauty of each of the monuments.

The monuments that have given it it's name are worthy of a stroll rather than a drive by. They are so impressive and a substantial reminder of who the heroes were to Southerners. So impressive, not to mention that it's one of the prettiest tree-lined streets in Virginia. It's especially nice at Easter...don't miss it if you're in town.
