Drive up Monument to see the monuments of the Confederate luminaries - Lee, Stuart, Jackson & Davis ( all facing South). The big attraction for me were the stately old mansions along the avenue - it is hard to believe how huge these homes are. It is a lovely drive along this wide avenue. A nice thing to add to... More

The trolley is a good thing to do in Richmond but don't do it just to see monument avenue. You can't see the monuments from the trolley.

We have lived here for over 20 years and have ridden up and down Monument Ave. many many times. Just recently we drove down, parked the car and walked for 3 miles...it is the only way to appreciate the homes and monuments!

Monument Avenue is not just a way to get through part of the city; it is a most beautiful drive through history. It is also a tour of several architectural styles that make Richmond famous. A drive down Monument Avenue is a must see for visitors to Richmond.

The Monuments are easily visible, but you can not walk up to many as they are in traffic roundabouts.

Where can you find statues of Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Maury, Jefferson Davis, J.E.B. Stuart all erected between 1890 and 1925, and at the other end there is a statue of Arthur As he. Great to visit and enjoy

I drove down Monument Avenue recently. The Jackson and Lee Monuments are my favorites. I know of no city like Richmond and this Street makes it unique from your Civil War heroes to Maury to Arthur Ashe history lives. No visit to Richmond is complete without a ride down Monument Avenue

The best way to view Monument is Avenue would be on a bicycle. The Avenue is lined with beautiful homes on both sides. There are 5 monuments along the way. If you drive it takes less than 5 minutes. Checkout some of the side streets - the neighborhoods are amazing. Travelationship.com
