Monument Avenue is beautiful! Every time I pass through, I am reminded that life has seasons. From Robert E. Lee to Arthur Ashe; the Avenue synthesizes the history of Richmond. A good place to take a drive or walk around when visiting Richmond!

Monument Ave. is a great historic avenue for runners or spectators when the Monument 10k is in town. It also is great for the Easter parade and other events, or just a stroll down a historic avenue.
