April 2020 issue


In the April issue of Virginia Living, we spend a spring racing weekend in Middleburg, travel off the beaten path to dine at The Palisades in Eggleston, visit the streets of Bombay from your own kitchen with recipes from Richmond’s Keya Wingfield, go behind the scenes of the Garden Club of Virginia’s Daffodil Show, meet the woman who makes the gardens grow at Monticello, and take a swing or throw an axe with a drink in hand at new bar-forward entertainment centers around the state. Plus, check out our eighth annual State of Education special section, in which we honor more than 150 top colleges, private high schools, private K-8 schools, public school systems, and special needs schools. Finally, plan your summer vacation with our WaterLife getaway guide, filled with waterfront destinations, boating itineraries, splashy restaurants, and fashion must-haves.
