“A stately tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Amid a phalanx of trees, a large median on this avenue contains statues of importance to Richmonders and Virginians: J. E. B. Stuart; Robert E. Lee; Stonewall Jackson; Matthew Maury, pathfinder of the seas; and Arthur Ashe, Jr. A pleasant drive among icons of history rivaling Bull St. in Savannah.

“A great avenue to drive down and/or explore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

We only drove down this avenue as we didn't have time to explore it on foot, but nonetheless it was a sight to behold! Beautiful homes to look at on either side of the road and of course the large monuments are grand!

“Architecturally stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

Monument Ave is a visual cornucopia of sights. Drive up and down and pay careful attention to detail. You will see things unmatched in any city in the country. Seriously, or better yet, get out of the car walk the 8-10 blocks from one end to the other.

“One of America's most beautiful boulevards”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

Architecture, landscape and history all converge to impress you. If you're short on time, take a drive along Monument Avenue. Better yet, park the car and see it up close. This is what fine urban living is all about.

“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
