Carytown has just about something for everyone. There are many restaurants, shops, and a vintage movie theater. There is street and off street parking. Many vintage shops and even a chocolate shop.

Food, fun and funkie. Many shops - new & old favorites. All kinds of food options. Inexpensive movie theater at the Byrd. Near the fabulous Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Only major drawback is parking, but only because the area is so popular.
