February 2021 issue

In the February issue of Virginia Living, we invite you to give yourself a break by visiting one of Virginia’s many luxury spas, and try one of the schoolyard sports that are making a comeback among adults eager to play. Explore our sweet samples by Virginia chocolatiers or warm up your winter with our recipes for corn and crab chowder, Hungarian goulash, harvest chili, and a very Virginia peanut soup.

From gowns, cakes and flowers to music, stationery and jewelry, Virginia Living Weddings is the resource for anyone planning a wedding in Virginia.
