A very eclectic area for arts/crafts. The bead shop is great, as well as the toy stores. There are many restaurants-high and low end that look great. Didn't have time to eat there but the smells were permeating the air.

We visited Richmond recently for a wedding. We ended up getting to town hours before the wedding was set to start and drove through Carytown on the way to the wedding. When we found out we were super early we decided to "go back where they was paintings on the wall". We found a spot put on our sneakers and just walked. There was food, shops, art and locals (I LOVE LOCALS!). It was a very nice way to kill time while waiting for the wedding to start. Would highly recommend on a nice spring/summer day.

After visiting Richmond's interesting historic sites, my friend and I found Carytown underwhelming. It's simply a street lined with small shops selling clothing (both new and used), decorative items, etc. There are plenty of places to eat. If you're hoping just to while away a bit of time, the area is fine, I suppose, but there's nothing particularly notable about it. It could be any place where there are five or six blocks of shops in a row. We wouldn't return if we were to visit Richmond again.

Have been coming here since the mid-80s, and have never been disappointed. The last time was with my mom and aunt, we had so much fun. . . ate at the Galaxy and shopped at Bygones and World of Mirth + 2-3 others. Awesome memory.
