“Beautiful Street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

I take it when I drive anywhere in Richmond. Moves faster than Broad St and is simply beautiful no matter what season. Covered in snow, warm spring/summer days, fall leaves on or off trees. You often find people tanning, running, walking dogs, playing games, picnicking, anything down the median in the center. Looks like a lot of fun.

“Great walking neighborhood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Nice place to take a walk. Also, look for time of year you are visiting as there is a 10K in March and an Easter Parade on Monument Ave. each year. Lot's of good neighborhood eateries too like Caliente, Joe's Inn and Garnett's just off of Monument.

“A stately tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Amid a phalanx of trees, a large median on this avenue contains statues of importance to Richmonders and Virginians: J. E. B. Stuart; Robert E. Lee; Stonewall Jackson; Matthew Maury, pathfinder of the seas; and Arthur Ashe, Jr. A pleasant drive among icons of history rivaling Bull St. in Savannah.

“A great avenue to drive down and/or explore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

We only drove down this avenue as we didn't have time to explore it on foot, but nonetheless it was a sight to behold! Beautiful homes to look at on either side of the road and of course the large monuments are grand!

“Architecturally stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Monument Ave is a visual cornucopia of sights. Drive up and down and pay careful attention to detail. You will see things unmatched in any city in the country. Seriously, or better yet, get out of the car walk the 8-10 blocks from one end to the other.
