It's got something for everyone. Definitely worth a visit. I've been several times with family in Richmond. Food- beer- shops- candy- street festivals... movie theatre.. it's a great thing to do for a half day while in Richmond.

Not someone you know, necessarily, but you will bump into someone because the sidewalks are full of people chatting and looking, but not at where they are going! Carytown is fun - lots of restaurants and shops and coffee bars - the usual fare, a little rundown, but good for an afternoon and evening adventure.

This little boulevard has a lot of character. Cute little shops and storefronts make this a fun place to spend a few hours. You'll probably spend as much time finding a parking spot as you will shopping or eating. :(

In my top five places to go in Richmond. Plenty of shopping for all kinds of items like hobbies, food, rare items, antiques, sports, desserts, movies, music, drinks, night life, tattoos and so much more. Byrd theater is located here. Diverse dining options. A great place to enjoy time with your family or friends or as a couple, a great... More

The Carytown district in Richmond, VA is a destination into itself. No visit to Richmond is complete without a stroll through Carytown. You will find a mix of quaint one-of-a-kind shops, local restaurants, and even a vintage movie theater all within walking distance. Free public parking is available, however, be aware that evenings and weekends you might have to park... More

Such a fun place to spend the afternoon. We walked up and down the street, shopped in various shops, and ate at a couple of different restaurants. Always a fun time!

Carytown is cool if you are looking to be around the youth of Richmond there were tons of college students. Great food and cool shops

There is a free parking garage but it was a long way from the restaurant where we would be having lunch. Luckily we squeezed into an on street space about a block away. It looked as if there were a lot of quirky and interesting places to explore and shop in, but our male companions were not too happy about... More
