April 2019 Issue


In the April issue of Virginia Living, discover the gentle sport of beagling at the National Beagle Club’s Fall Beagle Pack Trials in Aldie, and dress up Easter dinner with decadent deviled eggs. We explore the revitalized Eastern Shore, where the last five years have seen remarkable growth in Cape Charles and the surrounding area—including hotels, restaurants, shopping, breweries, and more—and we enjoy chocolate for dinner at The Conche in Leesburg. We also celebrate the 400th anniversary of 1619—the year America started to look like America—with a deep dive into the story of English settlement in Virginia. Celebrating the Garden Club of Virginia’s Historic Garden Week, we visit Old Langley Ordinary, a historic tavern-turned-home featured on the Garden Club of Fairfax’s tour. Plus, in our annual special flipbook issue, Health & Wellness, we feature a beginner’s guide to running, recipes for healthy drinks, and more. Pick up a copy of the April 2019 issue today.
