The details on the monuments are amazing. A great quick walk as part of the Capitol tour and worth the 30 minutes or so. The ground are well landscaped and security is everywhere. Walk though, as there is no parking really.

The monuments are interesting. Due to parking issues, it's difficult to study the monuments; it's a drive by and look activity.

My wife and I visited recently and embarked on the weekly walking tour. This was our number one thing to do in Richmond and it did not measure up to expectations. The one good aspect was that we learned how Richmond is balancing the honouring of its past heroes with integrating into the United States. However an emphasis on looking... More

As dyed in the wool Yankees, transplanted to Northern Virginia we felt it our obligation while in our Commonwealth's capital city to take a stroll along this beautiful avenue to see the statues of the heroes of "The War of Northern Aggression." History should be preserved and these monuments are beautiful works of art that deserve to be viewed, but... More

Take your time as you drive down this Avenue. Reflect on the reason and meaning for all of the monuments. To me it was worth the walk. It gave me more time to step back in history. Well worth a visit.

The monuments were amazing but the drive from one end to the other revealed one amazing house after another. There is a tour but we opted out and drove ourselves. It is a little unnerving as the streets are quite narrow!

Really, this is a very nice tribute to the rich history of Richmond, Virginia. For history buffs, it is an absolute must, but unless you have small kids who just want to see an amusement park or the play area of a fast food restaurant, it would be a good addition to the tour for most anyone.

If you like diverse Architecture and a sense of History, then you will love walking, biking, or driving down Monument Avenue. There are quite a few Historical Monuments and large turn-of-the-century mansions to see and admire, along with beautiful large trees lining the avenue. Sometimes I actually make excuses to drive down it when I am in the area of... More

This avenue has many statues commemorating soldiers of the Civil War. The statutes are lovely. In the fall the trees are beautiful. In the spring you will see tulips and azaleas.
