August 2018 Issue


In the August issue of Virginia Living, we offer itineraries for six of the best summer road trips ever, from Chincoteague Island to Cumberland Gap and show you where to stay, where to play and why we love it. We also help you punch up Taco Tuesday with globally-inspired fillings like spicy chicken tinga with queso fresco and pickled red onions, and we take you on a tour of the newly renovated historic Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach. In our annual special section Women in the Law we meet Doris Causey of Richmond, Lauren Ellerman of Roanoke and Jennifer Eaton of Chesapeake, three standout attorneys with a deep commitment to public service. In Dental Health, we give you the lowdown on the biggest trends, including our obsession with teeth whitening, the effectiveness of natural toothpaste, how red wine may help prevent tooth decay and other news.
