Monument Avenue is a very pretty drive! The homes along this street display beautiful architecture. The monuments are quite impressive. There is no sidewalk linking the monuments, so it is best to drive and find street parking should you want to take a picture.

Summarizing the drive down Monument Avenue in one word...touching. But I'd like to add beautiful and awe inspiring too. The homes surrounding the monuments are beautiful. Taking drive or walk is stirring. Add this stop to your Richmond trip!

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

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
