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
Worth seeing but being honest it's just a road of large houses and coming from England the history for me is limited and controversial having the monuments there given what the viewpoint was of then people who's monuments they are. But it's part of the...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

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!

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 sections. The statues can easily be seen from the car and the more interesting architecture is confined to a shorter section. It is in the interesting architecture area that you will possibly want to park.

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.
