"Super Diverse Street With Lots to Offer"
Monticello Avenue has a little bit of everything. If you are the cruise around the mall type, you will find MacArthur Center. It is the nicest, cleanest mall in Hampton Roads. The mall has a great mix of stores and if you have a little one, they have a great play area in the food court. Now if you are the type that likes to just walk down a street to take in the views- this will not be your street. Of course you can't talk about Monticello Ave. without mentioning The Norva. They have an amazing mix of local and national bands that come through all year long. There is plenty of room to dance, grab a beer and have a bite to eat. The shows sell out fast, so get your tickets early. Finally, I am a thrift shopper and Monticello has some great shops. These shops are further north of the mall area around 18th street. Go check out the Hope House Foundation if you want the true thrift store feel and check out Savvy Seconds if you want used designer labels.
