Reviewed January 9, 2013

Best place in Richmond for an ecclectic assortment of boutiques, coffee shops, and restaurants. Also home to the annual watermelon festival and new years eve celebration.

“Walking and shopping”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Great place to park, walk, shop and eat. There are many choices for shopping and eating. only downside is parking, but I find a few spots on the side streets sometimes.

“great place to spend an afternoon”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We enjoyed our afternoon walking around Carytown. Perhaps because it was chilly and gray, we had no trouble finding parking on a side street. I appreciated the range of shops and restaurants--and the absence of chain stores. One of the best discoveries was Guitar Works. We only bought a music book for my daughter--but will definitely go back when she is ready to graduate to one of their hand-crafted instruments.
This was a great way to begin our visit to Richmond!

“good shops and many different restaurants”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

I wish we'd had more time to sop because there were so many interesting stores. We did eat at several restaurants and loved walking around the neighborhood.
