A series of monuments up Monument Ave in Richmond. You can park on the street, or a side street and walk into the center area to see the monuments.

Dont miss a drive down this beautiful boulevard, especially in the spring. The beautiful old homes, churches, old trees and of course, the cobblestone surface, makes this a remarkable joy to experience. Having lived in Richmond during the 1980's, I have driven this route hundreds...More

Richmond streets and traffic are challenging. We opted to try downtown and monument avenue on Sunday (tomorrow). Friday and Saturday were hectic compounded by the snowflake demonstrations. Maybe Sunday will be better.

Lovely drive or walk. Gorgeous homes line the thoroughfare. Easy to see the monuments from your car. Free street parking.

I think so. It would be nice if some contextualization could be added to the existing statues and some additional statues reflecting Richmond’s diversity added, but Monument Avenue should remain. But, then, I am a non-Richmondian and and am white, so my perspective is not...More

Take a casual drive from Stuart Circle to Rosneath and enjoy the beautiful homes along with the large states at either end

Loved it - in a day when so many if these statues are being torn down for political correctness, this avenue preserves all - from Robert E Lee to Alan Ash

All of the monuments are in the middle divider, and very spread out. We actually drove and parked every few monuments so my husband could get out to take pictures.

We took a nice ride to see the homes and statues on the street. It was like nothing we have ever seen.

It is hard not to go down this street thinking that the original statues were put up to celebrate the confederacy and what it stood for. I do believe that Richmond is proud of its heritage and they do a fine job at bridging the...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

We had heard the trolley tours were uncomfortable so we asked the concierge to recommend a tour. We hired a lady historian by the name of Gayle Spence and had a lovely day or touring and wonderful conversation.
