Where is a good place to park the car if one wants to stroll down Monument Avenue instead of drive it?
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 sections. The statues can easily be seen from the car and the more interesting architecture is confined to a shorter section. It is in the interesting architecture area that you will possibly want to park.
I think a good "launch" location and ease of parking would be on or at Thompson Street & Monument Avenue . This will give you a good hike East on Monument with excellent architectural viewing and your choice of walking on the grassy median or either side of Monument Avenue on the sidewalks .
Any of the side streets that say parking allowed. If you start closer to where the monuments begin you have a better chance at parking. There is a Kroger on Broad St you can park in the lot and walk x to the monuments. I would be careful on the weekdays b/c VCU is there and they patrol the lots for kids parking in the lots. The weekends are better. Parking in the city on the weekends is better anyhow b/c the rules are relaxed.
Any side streets
Parking can be a challenge depending on Day and time
No real good place. Try to find a place on a side street. There are a few lots available as well.
Best to look for a spot on a side stree. Besides the monuments, beautiful homes line both sides of the Boulevard, which are best viewed by walking.
Usually parking is easier on the side streets. If you start down at Lombardy, you can get lunch/ dinner at KubaKuba-yummy.
Drive down Monument Avenue and pray for a parking place on the street!
Drive the Avenue first to determine what stretches most interest you. You may get lucky and find something right on the Avenue.
We parked right on Monument Avenue. Check for current parking regulation signs. We drove down once and found a parking spot. Can't speak to side street availability.
We just drove it. I hate parking on the street.
