“Beautiful drive”

Loved being able to drive on a early Saturday or Sunday morning down this Avenue with all of the lovely homes and monuments along the way. Make sure to make several trips along this road during your stay

“Beautiful Mansions, Historical Monuments”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

A trip down Monument Avenue is something everyone should do when in Richmond. The homes are beautiful and well maintained. A lot of history an be seen in the architect of these magnificent homes. The Monuments along Monument Avenue are a treasure trove of history. It is beautiful all year long, but especially at Christmas and in the Summer.

“Stunning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

Monument Avenue is a gorgeous drive/walk. The Spring ushers in beautiful flowering trees to compliment the lovely homes and the monuments. I believe it was Winston Churchill who proclaimed it the most beautiful street in the world. You MUST see it when you visit Richmond,Va.

“Don't just drive this. Stop and admire the sights...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Justly known as one of the greatest avenues in America, in the three times I have been to Richmond I see something new each time but I always return to drive along this noble avenue and stop to admire the magnificent monuments and the impressive houses. Parking is very easy so take time to enjoy the sites and the atmosphere of the place. Whilst all the monuments are impressive, the one of Robert E Lee [1890] still dominates all it surveys although my wife and I are very fond of the Arthur Ashe sculpture [1996] especially as he was so popular at Wimbledon. Don’t miss the Confederate Memorial Chapel which is just a couple of blocks off the avenue. It is good that the fabric of the neighbourhood is now preserved despite some earlier poor and inappropriate additions to buildings. If in Richmond, don’t miss this…
