“Quirky but cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Something for everyone here, lots of good "people watching!" Eateries and bars are fun and the shops are a 'plenty. Worth the visit if you are in RVA

“Very cool place to walk around and enjoy the shops and food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Carytown has grown more in every way over the years, getting better and better every time I visit. The food choices are so plentiful. The shops are neat and unique. I found parking on the street each time, but they could use more lots. I felt safe as well.

We park on this street on our way to Morton. It was a good walk and we enjoyed this environment a lot. Definitely will come back again.

“Went for the Watermelon Festival, but the shops were better.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Watermelon Festival was worth the price of admission (free), but the shops in Carytown were fun. Highlights were seeing Byrd Theater and eating Bev's Ice Cream. To be fair, the watermelon was delicious and a large portion for a buck. But how does the the guy selling magic gutters always allowed to have a booth at every festival and county fair?
