Best of Virginia 2014: Northern Virginia

Mark Edward Atkinson

Northern virginia is not only where north meets south; it is that microcosm where the Old Dominion meets the flurry of flavors, customs and innovations that make up our modern world. It is a region that conjoins worlds, a dynamic place where the question isn’t how to balance our lives but rather how to blend their parts. Washington Dulles International and Ronald Reagan National airports, for instance, have exhibition spaces so travelers can satisfy their itch for art. Salamander Resort & Spa connects Middleburg’s iconic equestrian resources with its discerning and worldly guests by offering activities like yoga on horseback. The Vintage Piedmont Wine Camp in Hume combines education with luxury and relaxation. And if you want to satisfy all your whims in one place, Alexandria’s Del Ray neighborhood is a classic example of a small town within a bustling city. So enough about balance. Blend. In NoVa, you can have it all.
