Carytown is a definite Richmond attraction. It's a unique shopping area, a restaurant area, and an altogether interesting area to walk around and people watch. Two attractions are, for me, the most special. First is the Byrd Theatre. A deco delight, this old moviehouse shows second run films. Try to go on a Saturday night for the pre-movie organ concert. The kids will love it! Then go across the street for the second attraction--homemade ice cream at Bev's.

The Carytown area is a lovely place to browse the shops and grab some great food at one of the many eateries. The parking can be difficult at times so if you can find alternate transportation - give it a try!
Enjoy!

A lot of fun shops to browse in, small places with unique and interesting items. Plenty of restaurants and coffee spots to stop in to refresh yourself after walking up and down the street!

Interesting and varied retail street comprising boutiques, food outlets, specialist retailers, craft shops and other businesses. We found a great ice cream shop and a native crafts shop to be of interest.

Quaint, kitschy, eclectic and fun. Shopping for everyone, restaurants (check out the various ethnic choices) range from fine dining to dives. Plan on spending a few hours to walk up one side of Carytown and down the other side. Stop for ice cream, coffee or a glass of wine or beer at the local brewery. Vintage movie theatre, showing classic movies or film festival favorites. There is something for everyone, from children to children at heart. This is also a locals venue, a nice meld of visitors and locals. This is a must-do whilst in Richmond.

My daughter has taken us a few times to Carytown to look through the specialty shops. Our favorite is the Christmas Shop. My wife collects German Smokers and they usually have a large display of them. They also have a very unique display of Christmas ornaments that you will not find anywhere else.

Carytown is full of great boutiques and eateries. You can great diners and fine dining. The shops are unique and mostly reasonable in prices. The Byrd Theater is a beautiful old time theater where you can see great movies cheap! It's an easy walk down the street to explore all the little gems along the way.
