Virginia Hot Spots

Looking for a Vino-filled Afternoon?
You’ve come to the right state, whether you know it or not! Virginia is chock full of wineries! With the current number hitting at 228, pick up a VA wine map and get to tasting! Don’t miss my favorites! You’ll find the first four below right outside of Washington, DC. Veritas is located outside of Charlottesville, VA.

Bull Run Winery
Sunset Hills Winery
Linden Vineyards
Barrel Oak Winery
Veritas Vineyards and Winery

Searching for a Cold Brewsky?
No need to pick up a case of Bud Light to quench your thirst. The craft brew/micro brew/nano brew scene in Virginia is exploding. Instead of a VA Wine Trail, hop on one of the VA Beer Trails! The beer coming out of Virginia right now is unique and delicious. There’s a lot of hard work and dedication going into this craft, and you don’t want to miss out on tasting the goodness!

Lost Rhino
Bad Wolf Brewing
Corcoran Brewing
Blue Mountain Brewery
Devil’s Backbone

In Need of a History Lesson?
I couldn’t possibly list all of the places for you to visit that would touch on history, politics, and everything in between. These are my personal favorite places, and if you’re stretched for time, you won’t be disappointed!

Mount Vernon
Manassas National Battlefield Park
DEA Museum & Visitor’s Center
Clifton, VA
Monticello

Have a Hot Date?
Getting dressed up and going out on a “hot” dinner date is something we don’t do often enough. So throw on that mini, glue on those eyelashes and don’t forget your lipstick!

The Wine House
Villa Mozart
Trummer’s on Main
L’Auberge Chez Francois
One Block West
Magnolias at the Mill

In the Mood for Comfort Food?
Comfort food is my all time favorite grub. It’s also most likely the reason those extra pounds never seem to budge! If you’ve saved up for a good ol’ calorie binge, you won’t be sorry eating at the below. And yes in my mind, guacamole is a comfort food!

Burgers: The Main Street Pub
Hot Dogs: The Vienna Inn
BBQ: Bad to the Bone Smokehouse
Pizza: Ciro’s NY Pizza
Guacamole: Alto Plaza
