Virginia Living kicks off 2007 with a nod to Virginia’s namesake virgin queen, Queen Elizabeth the First—in stunning photographs, couture jewelry and fashion from Virginia’s top retailers echo the Virginia of 400 years ago. Also, visit Wytheville’s Virginia City, a forgotten western Virginia theme park from the Gunsmoke era. Plus Leesburg, caramel and a fabulous home by the late Virginia Beach architect Lewis Right-Meyer, Virginia’s Frank Lloyd Wright. There’s also guide to Virginia’s great inns, with not only great accommodations but also some of the finest restaurants south of New York. And meet Daddy G—Gene Barge, one of the famed musicians from the era of the Norfolk sound, a time when 1960s soul flourished.
