In the area and that we would drive through. Very cool statues, some are quite large. We didn’t stop to take a closer look as it is on a busy street and parking looked scarce. We will check it out again.

No trip to Richmond is complete without a ride down Monument Ave. I can picture myself back in time -- the homes along this street are as grand as the monuments!

Benny Goodman poached eggs on latkes was divine. Salmon roe and hollandaise sauce was perfect and latkes were crisp and light. Atmosphere right out of the 50’s. Great staff. Eclectic menu.

A nice drive down Monument Avenue reveals beautiful restored homes and impressive monuments to everyone from Jefferson Davis to Arthur Ashe.

Beautiful street. Easier to drive as the mouments were far apart. Be careful crossing, as the street is very busy.

You cannot erase history. Trying to get it away would not solve any problem, history is history and monuments dont kill, people do. A fine row of monuments of a still debated past and... in an exquisite setting. More modern statues could be added to...More

Would have liked to have stopped and walked the whole length from Robert E. Lee to Arthur Ashe but time and spouse's knee prevented this. Regardless, we drove and admired the statutes, homes and landscaping. My wife and I are both Yankees but lived in...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.
