October 2020 issue


In the October issue of Virginia Living, we enjoy gorgeous decor, amazing service, and outstanding edibles at boutique hotels around the Commonwealth. We learn how to taste cider and we explore the technology at work on Virginia’s farms. Also, we’ll introduce you to former  NFL star Darryl Haley who loves to bake; we learn about the seriously creepy camel crickets and we visit a Keswick church celebrating 275 years of service. In Drink, mix up five refreshing fall cocktails (and shop six local mixers), sip farm-to-bottle beer and Virginia-made bubbly and get recipes and tips for DIY pizza. Plus, hit the road and explore Harrisonburg, the buzzing town in the Shenandoah Valley. At last, check our tips for healthy living and our Top Hospital Awards in our annual Hospitals & Health Care supplement, recognizing 50 hospitals for excellence in patient care.
