Monument Avenue is worth the side trip to Richmond, especially since they are still a controversial part of Virginian history. These beautiful monuments and the gorgeous cobblestone avenue (circa 1860s) transport you to Confederate Richmond. They also tell a back story--they were erected as arrogant...More

It is about 10 miles long street with houses over 100 years and many with original decorations. The most expensive real state area in Richmond.

The statute of Robert E. Lee on horseback alone makes this a landmark. We walked the first portion but it is at least several blocks between statutes so we returned on our drive out of town. Hard to image over 100,000 people were on hand...More

Spectacular experience with magnificent views of historical monuments. If you like civil war history then this section of town is just one of many sites to see. Highly recommend you don't skip over this attraction.

This main Richmond street is lined by lovely homes and of course has the statues. Worth a drive. We drove it twice to absorb its significance.

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
