October 2016 Issue


Head west with the October 2016 issue of Virginia Living. We take a trip to the New River Valley, where outdoor adventure meets world-class dining, a thriving arts scene and unparalleled hospitality. Plus, discover the luxury that awaits at 26 resorts around the state perfect for a fall escape, from Keswick Hall and Richmond’s Quirk Hotel to the Morrison House in Alexandria and Primland in Meadows of Dan. We peek inside the sleek and modern Richmond residence of restaurateur Julius C. Pierce of Williamsburg’s Pierce’s Pitt Bar-B-Que, meet a remarkably social breed of pig in Lynchburg, and offer tips for serving classic Italian charcuterie. We also meet the young horticulturalist blazing trails at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens and the former pageant queen behind Miss Virginia USA, as well as newcomer to the Charlottesville gallery scene, Neal Guma, and UVA and VT’s new head football coaches Bronco Mendenhall and Justin Fuentes. Plus, special bound-in supplement State of Education 2016 featuring Top High Schools and Colleges, a list of more than 150 of the most exciting and innovative programs across the Commonwealth.
