Loved this. Cruising down Monument Avenue is monument after monument; Arthur Ashe, Lee and others. Parking is available on the side streets. It's free worth the drive.

A lot of GPS devices guide you down Broad; if you're to the north of the city, Monument Avenue has less traffic lights, those lights are better coordinated, and the trip is MUCH more scenic.

The Valentine Museum is reflecting on the Confederate monuments on Monument Avenue. The mayor's commission has said to remove the Jefferson Davis Monument and add context to the other monuments. No easy challenge. Think about what historical context you would provide if you had that...More

I am a huge history person and this street is always interesting to walk and read the monuments information. There is a lot of controversy with the civil war monuments but worth seeing while they are still around.

Just driving down this street and see all of the magnificent statues to everyone from Arthur Ashe to civil war generals is well worth doing!

Washington DC is full of monuments and statues. Wear comfortable shoes, have alot of patience dealing with the crowds and watch your belongings and kids. There is alot to see.

In the area and that we would drive through. Very cool statues, some are quite large. We didn’t stop to take a closer look as it is on a busy street and parking looked scarce. We will check it out again.

No trip to Richmond is complete without a ride down Monument Ave. I can picture myself back in time -- the homes along this street are as grand as the monuments!

Benny Goodman poached eggs on latkes was divine. Salmon roe and hollandaise sauce was perfect and latkes were crisp and light. Atmosphere right out of the 50’s. Great staff. Eclectic menu.

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

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.
