We got there a little late and all the shops closed early. Would have loved to do more shopping. Parking was hard to find

It's got something for everyone. Definitely worth a visit. I've been several times with family in Richmond. Food- beer- shops- candy- street festivals... movie theatre.. it's a great thing to do for a half day while in Richmond.

Not someone you know, necessarily, but you will bump into someone because the sidewalks are full of people chatting and looking, but not at where they are going! Carytown is fun - lots of restaurants and shops and coffee bars - the usual fare, a little rundown, but good for an afternoon and evening adventure.

This little boulevard has a lot of character. Cute little shops and storefronts make this a fun place to spend a few hours. You'll probably spend as much time finding a parking spot as you will shopping or eating. :(

The Carytown district in Richmond, VA is a destination into itself. No visit to Richmond is complete without a stroll through Carytown. You will find a mix of quaint one-of-a-kind shops, local restaurants, and even a vintage movie theater all within walking distance. Free public parking is available, however, be aware that evenings and weekends you might have to park... More
