Monument Avenue is worth the side trip to Richmond, especially since they are still a controversial part of Virginian history.

Only the Lee monument can be viewed up close. It (and Stuart) sit in the center of a busy traffic circle (watch out for locals who will run down the gawking tourists!) The others sit in the middle of the Avenue, not easy or safe...More
Drive down this street and admire the historical markers of this fine city. Times and political attitudes may have changed, but one cannot deny the beauty of this street with it's lovely homes and monuments.

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 sections. The statues can easily be seen from the car and the more interesting architecture is confined to a shorter section. It is in the interesting architecture area that you will possibly want to park.

We had heard the trolley tours were uncomfortable so we
asked the concierge to recommend a tour. We hired a lady
historian by the name of Gayle Spence and had a lovely
day or touring and wonderful conversation.
