“Beautiful Street!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Came across this by accident and so glad we did! The monuments are amazing, but the beauty is in the homes lining the streets. They are beautiful and such wonderful architecture! A must

“Prettiest Street in America”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

Lovely homes line the street, Civil War Military monuments at the major intersections. Easter Sunday Parade closes the car traffic and an endless stream of human and dog strutters entertain the masses. Put on a bonnet and join the parade.

“interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

history, the statutues, cobblestones, especially the beautiful houses on Monument Avenue. Definitely worth a drive down this road! A BIG recommendation for out of town folks. My experience is that northerners are not impressed!

“Do a drive by”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

A drive on Monument Avenue is a drive through the History book. Take time to really look at the monuments. Test your memory? What do you know about this? Ten look for some hints to help you.
