Enjoyed the all too short drive down Monument Ave. Thus, drove it 4 times to look at each historic monument.

Drive down Monument Avenue and you get a sense of history right before your eyes. Students of history will recognize all the figures; others can do some research later. And these are just one part of Richmond's historical past.

We did the drive along Monument Ave to see the statues, monuments, and stately homes and it's worth doing. Can also be walked if you are hardy walkers and the weather is good.

I had heard of this avenue. I made my way to see it and was amazed. It is a drive from downtown but worth it.

This is a beautiful place to take a drive or a long walk but get there soon because people are trying to take our monuments away

Always enjoy this lovely avenue when traveling to or from downtown Richmond - the architecture of many of the homes is stunning and, should you be fortunate enough to travel here during Christmas, please enjoy the festive lights and decorations.

Same advice as others. Look on one of the side streets. Be aware that it is a long walk and you have to double back to get to your car. You might want to drive it first and then determine if you need to walk certain... More
