This historical site is not easy to visit. The statues are far from downtown, and they are not close together. There are no footpaths on the grassy island connecting them. Some are in the center of busy traffic, and not easy to stop and view....More

When I grew up, I thought every city had a Monument Avenue with beautiful monuments and there probably are some others, but I believe Richmond’s Monument Avenue is a must see when coming to Richmond. The monuments are stretched out, so you need to drive...More

If you want to be on the front edge of where the lost cause, slavery, and racial equality come together then Monument Avenue is the place to see. Yes, there are protests and rallies, the dead generals, and the controversial statues of leaders who owned...More

So much history along one street. It makes me so sad some want to remove the statues. You can't dismiss history! It was all part of our heritage. But we can embrace it and learn from prior mistakes. We are one!

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.

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
