We just drove by the different monuments and admired the architecture of the houses. It was a very nice drive! If you are in Richmond you should at least drive by to admire the grand monuments.

We opted to drive down Monument Ave. instead of walk. We stopped along the road at the ones we wanted to take a closer look at. Along the drive we also got to see some of the beautiful architecture in the city.

It says it's on Peterson street if you gps it with this app but actually it locates at north Allen avenue! Was walking 3km in 40 degree hot summer to a basketball playground! So ridiculous!

Don't miss a drive on historical Monument Ave. In addition to the wonderful statues the homes lining both sides of the Avenue are spectacular.

We walked around the Monument Ave and added a couple of museums for a 3-4 hour experience of Richmond Va. Great walking experience. Lots of trees for staying out of the sun. Very interesting architecture and community revitalization.

Really not much to say except this is an excellent walking, biking, or driving tour. It is great to see all the statues along this road. My advice is to either walk or bike it so you can take your time to read about them.

This street offers you a perfect view on how rich people in the beginning of the 20th century loved the grandeur of European cities like Paris and Londen. The variety of beautifull homes is really a feast. Take a stroll alongside this boulevard like street!

A lot of lovely houses, as well as the historical monuments. The Virginia Historical Society building is nearby.

This was a few blocks from our hotel and we wanted to walk off dinner. What a nice place! State buildings, old governor's mansion, and a court building that looks like Hogwarts built it. Bell tower still tolls the hour and half. The statues are well made and interesting. Worth the walk. Plus, it's free!

Monument Avenue is as pretty a street as exists in all of the world! a huge center median with a grove of trees and jogging paths is more like a park setting than a street. I love driving down this street.
