June 2014 Issue


The June 2014 issue of Virginia Living celebrates summer both at home and abroad. Here in the Commonwealth, our feature story about 11-time national champion Virginia Polo explores the fast, furious and fashionable sport of kings. In food, we share five recipes for pie that are sure to conjure memories of all the pies you’ve loved before. Also, a visit to Chopping Bottom Farm where daring design meets historic Keswick and a feature on the innovative Music and Medicine Center at Norfolk’s Sentara Hospital where music therapy is helping stroke and traumatic accident victims regain the power of speech and movement. In travel, we explore luxury resorts in Jamaica, Brazil, Peru, Italy and Zambia developed by hoteliers with a passion for place, and profile country singer Kaitlyn Baker, a rising star who sings about the coal mines of her hometown of Pound. Plus, the newly renovated Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, the summer season at Wolf Trap, wearable art, weddings and much more. Pick up a copy of Virginia Living's June 2014 issue today!
