April 2016 Issue

APR2016.jpg

The April issue of Virginia Living features a visit to Fredericksburg, a 300-year-old city with a thriving arts scene, bourgeoning food culture, new retail and rapid development that blends history and modernity. We meet the families behind James River plantations, Berkeley, Shirley and Westover, who, for generations have shared a deep and abiding friendship as they maintain their historic estates for the future. We sojourn in Cuba, where, through a first of its kind kayaking tour on the Bay of Pigs and in Cienaga de Zapata National Park, we find a fresh view of the long-shuttered island nation. Also in this issue, five recipes for luxurious pasta dishes, dining at celebrity Chef Mike Isabella’s rustic Italian eatery Graffiato in D.C. and Richmond, Charlottesville’s Easton Porter Group and its expanding collection of luxury hospitality properties, Waterford’s historical cartographer Eugene Scheel, and Virginia Beach and Richmond’s Studio Center. Plus, bound-in supplement Health & Wellness 2016 where we meet Arlington’s YouTube star and power lifter Maxx Chewning, learn about hot fitness trend aerial yoga, share three super smoothie recipes, consider the lost art of convalescence and offer a guide to hotspots for all-terrain fitness around the state.
