Really enjoyed walking down the street in Carytown, taking in all the little shops and restaurants. Area is close to the museum district and VCU, so great location. Highly recommend to all out of town visiters and this is a "must do" in Richmond.

This short area of Cary street is likely a favorite of VCU students with its multitude of bars, restaurants, and consignment shops. It's only a few blocks and we'd suggest not going on Monday since many of the shops/restaurants are closed.

Not far from the Virginia Commonwealth University campus, this area is full of darling shops and fun restaurants. Many of the shops were closed on Mondays so visitors should be sure to check the website to be sure things are open.

The shops and eateries were charming! Lunch at Bakers Crust was perfect. We had the $10 duo of the house made soup with a panini sandwich made with house baked rustic bread. After browsing many quaint shops with unique wares, we finished off the afternoon...More

We visited the weekend of the marathon. No way to drive and we ended up in Carytown. Lots of nice little shops that we enjoyed and spent too much money in. I think most anybody would find this a nice, safe district to wander through...More

We only drove through the area. Time was limited. It looked like an assortment of funky shops and restaurants in an interesting neighborhood surrounded by unique homes. I rather preferred Alexandria's Old Town to Carytown.

Plenty to do and the food scene is unreal. Great shopping with lots of little Boutiques and oddities. If you make a trip to Richmond dont miss Carytown.

The answers provided are correct. I don't think any restaraunts allow dogs in. But, some shops will allow them. I know there is a dog pet treat shop that you and your dog can shop at.

Many of the shops keep their own, non-standard hours. I am sure you can check online for a specific shop. But, if that isn't an option, I would stick to 10-5 for M-S and on Sunday, 12-5. For example, Ten Thousand... More
