April 2017 Issue


Spring is in full force in the April issue of Virginia Living. We take a look at the elegant tradition of steeplechase, a sport that, from Foxfield and the Montpelier Hunt Races to the Virginia Gold Cup and Middleburg Spring Races, has long been one of the state’s most exciting pastimes. We visit a historic home in Norfolk whose owners bucked a trend and decided to upsize when their children had grown, and learn how Virginia Beach, the state’s largest city in both population and land area, aims to take its place on the national stage. In our travel story, we visit Bogota, Colombia, a city that has shed its violent past and now welcomes visitors to a booming restaurant scene and beautiful geography, and in our food story, chefs from around the state share recipes that update traditional favorite, bread pudding. Also in this issue: celebrating 100 years of cookie sale with the Girl Scouts, the new Quarry Gardens at Schuyler in Nelson County, Russian Realism at the Lazare Gallery in Charles City, the true confessions of a travel baseball dad and more. Plus, our special flipbook issue Health & Wellness 2017 features personal trainer and former NCAA track and field All American Courtney Cornwall, the mental boost that comes from rock climbing, plans for three colorful container gardens, tips on staying heart healthy, Best Doctors and more. Find the April issue of Virginia Living on quality newsstands around the state now. Order your 2017 April/Health & Wellness flip book issue today!
