Quirky and fun, but most of the shops are kind of expensive. The Byrd theater is cheap ($1.99!), and the highlight of Carytown for me!

There is plenty to see and do in Carytown. Just walking down the street you will find endless shops, restaurants, and bars. You can spend the whole day hanging out here. If you have a day and nothing planned, stop by and hang out and absorb the local culture and have some great food.

I love the unique shops and restaurants in Carytown! The retails association works hard to try to not have any chain establishments come in. I was disappointed when an ice cream chain came recently. I won't support it, when Bev's frozen yogurt is right across the street from the wonderful, historic Byrd Theater! This area is a Richmond must-do! Park along the street and walk all the blocks on a sunny day! Wonderful!
