Great statues and monuments. I was expecting perhaps a couple of monuments.....but there were blocks of them. They were all really very artistic.....and there are some hidden gems on them if you look for them.

First, don’t be offended. There are more than southern Confederate generals with statues here. From Arthur Ashe to Maury an oceanographer. The homes are a stunning time capsule of days gone by. Just a beautiful drive. We’ll return to walk this gorgeous drive during Christmas...More

There are a bunch of statues of i suppose confederate officers on horses block after block. If you drive around go to the fan district and see magnificent array of big old houses instead.

My husband and I and our friends added this to our list of places to see. We drove the avenue because of the heat but stopped to see the wonderful statues along the way. Would return in the cooler weather to stroll the avenue and...More

With various statuary being a controversial topic these days, it was a good time to look at the monuments from Robert E Lee to Arthur Ashe. Public monuments can be used to unify or divide, and I hope that these impressive statues can be used...More

A beautiful tree-lined boulevard with majestic old (150+ years) homes interspersed with magnificent grand monuments to Southern Gentlemen from Robert E. Lee to Arthur Ashe. Easy to drive the Avenue. Worth the time and energy.

My Uncle wanted to see the history here as he’s a history professor & if you can put aside the fact that these guys were essentially fighting for keeping slavery, it’s interesting. We just went with traffic as they were on a time crunch. Richmond...More

Cobblestone streets, beautiful trees, historic homes, and gorgeous statues. Hopeful that the city appreciates it for what it is and doesn't start pulling the statues down to be politically correct and rewrite history.

It is a beautiful drive. The traditional cobblestones have been somewhat retained, and you're able to get a good sense of Richmond living in the early part of the 20th century. But start at the Boulevard (landmark: First Baptist Church) and continue down Franklin to...More

It's a tree-lined boulevard with well maintained houses. Other than that, if you want to see monuments to Confederate "heroes", I suggest you look elsewhere. Motorists are not kind to tourist who want to stop and have a look around. If you want to get...More

Any of the side streets that say parking allowed. If you start closer to where the monuments begin you have a better chance at parking. There is a Kroger on Broad St you can park in the lot and walk x to the monuments. I... 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.
