After visiting Richmond's interesting historic sites, my friend and I found Carytown underwhelming. It's simply a street lined with small shops selling clothing (both new and used), decorative items, etc. There are plenty of places to eat. If you're hoping just to while away a bit of time, the area is fine, I suppose, but there's nothing particularly notable about it. It could be any place where there are five or six blocks of shops in a row. We wouldn't return if we were to visit Richmond again.

Have been coming here since the mid-80s, and have never been disappointed. The last time was with my mom and aunt, we had so much fun. . . ate at the Galaxy and shopped at Bygones and World of Mirth + 2-3 others. Awesome memory.

This area of Richmond is a lot like Old Town, Alexandria.....has a lot of restaurants and shops. It's a great place to take visitors if you want them to experience a little bit of everything. Great for walking around and browsing, too!

Best place in Richmond to visit for a spot of shopping and fine dining. Many good options from Chinese and Thai to Mexican and French. Nice eclectic collection of shops and the historic Byrd Theatre make Carytown a must see location in Richmond.

We had a great time poking in and out of the shops, grabbed a bite of lunch, and people and pet watched! Would come back and do this again, a neighborhood with a very friendly "vibe."
