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

Great monuments that need to be preserved. It was a nice drive on a rainy day. I’m sure on a sunny day, it would be great to walk around. My history husband loved it.

Walking on this fabulous Avenue is always a joy. I never tire of it and love showing it off to visitors when they come to Richmond. The intricacy of the monuments is state of the art.
