June 2018 Issue


In the June issue of Virginia Living, we meet the officers and horses of the state’s five mounted police units and learn about the important work they do safeguarding our communities every day. We also see why the bond the officers share with their equine partners goes well beyond the duties of the uniform. In our ultimate guide to Virginia’s summer music festivals, we show you where to find them, give you the lowdown on buzzy artists to watch, and offer tips and suggestions for gear that will keep you comfortable and feeling fresh on even the hottest of weekends. We introduce you to from-scratch ice cream makers around the state and offer ideas for updating some of the most classic of ice cream dishes—floats, sandwiches, sundaes and more—including sandwiching fresh strawberry ice cream between basil macarons and making a fizzy ice cream soda with honey ice cream and Earl Grey tea. We spend a food-focused weekend in Roanoke, where we visit some of the many restaurants giving the Star City its dining mojo, and take a thrilling dogsled trip to the top of the world in Greenland. And in our annual special section, Property & Home, we go inside some of the most stunning properties on the market today and share our comprehensive list of the state’s top real estate professionals.
