June 2020 Issue


In the June issue of Virginia Living, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Scenic Rivers Act with an in-depth look at the Commonwealth’s waterways. We also spend a summer weekend at the Tides Inn, discover a French rooftop wine garden in Falls Church, celebrate the Garden Club of Virginia’s centennial, and fill your summer table with lamb recipes from the Omni Homestead. We’ll introduce you to Virginia’s Soap Lady, Carole Kindel of Old Dominion Soap Company, who has been making soap in Madison County for 20 years, and we give a shoutout to Virginia’s distillers, who have pivoted from making spirits to hand sanitizer for their communities’ healthcare providers, first responders essential workers and families, aiding efforts to curb the spread of the coronavirus. Plus, keep your smile bright with our annual coverage of dental health on our Health & Wellness section. Pick up a copy of the June 2020 issue today!
