Carytown is a sweet find in Richmond. So much to choose from in the way of food, entertainment, health and fitness. Stroll down the street and just stop and pop in wherever you want. Parking can be difficult at time.s.

Maybe it was too hot to walk around and we had already eaten dinner, but Carytown did not impress me. Certainly, there were place to eat, but there was not much character to the area itself.

We received a warm greeting at every shop we stopped at. There were so many interesting treasures to find. A bit on the pricey side so we did more looking than buying.

This is one of Richmond's "cooler" areas. Lots of excellent restaurants, shops and a great positive vibe. Easy to get to, parking can be a bit testy, but worth your time, nonetheless. We found ourselves returning there several times during our five days in Richmond..

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
