Which, as a transplant to the US, we have so little of. It is a beautiful street. Every monument or ruin, or castle of history in all the world has a history behind it that may not be G rated, but it DID make a...More

We wanted to see the beautiful homes and civil war monuments as part of our civil war history tour. On Sunday morning, parking was relatively easy to find, and traffic was almost non-existent. Nice to see before or after visiting museums and battlefields in the...More

The only monument that is worth preserving on this avenue is the Arthur Ashe memorial. The rest of them should be dismantled. The confederacy is part of this country’s ugly history that should be preserved and studied, but there should no longer be monuments honoring...More

Great drive and a few times getting out to get a closer look. Why Arthur Ashe? Just doesn’t fit into the historical scheme of the street. Buildings along the sides are worth a good look.

This gives you an over view of important historical figures and magnificent homes. We definitely plan to go back during Christmas, when many of the homes decorate and during Easter, when we were told there will be an Easter hat contest for everyone including pets!

Visited the avenue as part of the Trolley Tour. The houses lining the street are fabulous and the statues make the avenue a Must Do in Richmond.

Same advice as others. Look on one of the side streets. Be aware that it is a long walk and you have to double back to get to your car. You might want to drive it first and then determine if you need to walk certain... More

We had heard the trolley tours were uncomfortable so we asked the concierge to recommend a tour. We hired a lady historian by the name of Gayle Spence and had a lovely day or touring and wonderful conversation.
