While I realize there are some questions over whether the monuments should still be there, I am so glad that they are. It is the only place that you can see such a grand avenue with beautiful art.

Monument Avenue is a must see for anybody visiting Richmond. Streets lined with beautiful homes and an historic street with numerous monuments. Simply beautiful.

The homes and statues are beautiful. I sure hope the city doesn't touch this history in their Capital city! There is a whole block that was the origional University of Richmond campus at the turn of the century.

If you are in the Richmond area, it is worth it to drive down Monument Ave just to see the beautiful homes and history of Richmond. I truly hope nothing ever happens to the massive monuments. It is all a sight to see!

We road Monument Avenue twice in one day. It’s a beautiful ride. Don’t miss it as it is old historic Virginia.

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.
