Located about 50 miles outside of DC, just before you reach Warrenton, Virginia’s quaint downtown district, is a unique retreat for those looking to get away from it all. The destination: Airlie— a gorgeous historic property based at the foothills of the Shenandoah Mountains with an esteemed past and an aura

I've been dreaming about the crispy ham-cured pork ribs from Pasture, the Southern small-plates restaurant by co-owner and Executive Chef Jason Alley, ever since visiting the Richmond location this past spring. On my recent trip to Charlottesville, my wish was granted, and I was able to have pork ribs part deux at his newest restaurant,

Located 15 minutes outside of downtown Charlottesville, Virginia, Keswick Hall is known as one of the most esteemed resorts in the U.S. Recently named one of Travel + Leisure's 500 "World's Best Hotels," the historic property is a peaceful oasis set on a picturesque, 600-acre private estate at the foot of the Blue

The Alley Light is a blink-or-you'll-miss-it culinary gem in the heart of downtown historic Charlottesville. Opening in February 2014, it's already gotten a lot of buzz, so I was eager to check it out. A nondescript handwritten sign points the way to an alley with a single light above a

Before last weekend, I had never stayed at one of Shenandoah National Park's lodges, opting instead to "rough it" and camp outside with friends. After one glorious night at the historic Skyland Resort... well--- sorry, friends--- I don't think I could ever go back to camping again! Here in the heart of Shenandoah National

Walking into Asheville's Omni Grove Park Inn for the first time, I immediately felt right at home. The gigantic stone fireplaces, the Great Hall's huge and open space, the attentive concierges and the air of history all were so comfortingly familiar... reminding me of the old National Park lodges from out west that I love.

OVERVIEW: The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm is both a revered establishment for DC foodies, as well as a bit of a hidden gem. This restaurant frequently makes appearances on regional “best of” lists, yet many have never heard of it. It features a creative, regionally-focused tasting menu that changes weekly. Only

Trip Overview: To say that a weekend in Hershey is a sweet escape is quite the understatement. There's literally chocolate everywhere. The streetlights are topped with jumbo Hershey's kisses, the coffee's roasted with cocoa beans, the people are all as nice as can be and -- heck -- in certain places even the air

Earlier this year, my grandmother gave me a stack of her already-read Southern Living magazines. As I leafed through them, glancing at the recipes and decorating tips, I was stopped in my tracks by one article, The South's Grand Resorts, Revisited. The article highlighted four of the South's most historic and luxurious

On a warm spring evening, I left DC and headed 3 hours north to the historic town of Wayne, Pennsylvania. I had plans to spend just one night there before venturing further south to explore the expansive gardens of the Brandywine Valley. I knew that Wayne was developed as part

St. Michaels, Maryland (the "Hamptons of the Chesapeake") is where the elite goes to spend the weekend. Located right along the Old Line State's craggy coastline, it's an idyllic waterfront retreat where all roads lead to the water. With a deep history and a familiar, small-town feel, it's the perfect spot for a weekend getaway. Here

I've driven through the inland town of Georgetown, Delaware more times than I can remember en route to the more popular Delaware beaches. As I've driven around the picturesque town square's traffic circle, I've thought "Oh, that looks so quaint!" but in my rush to make it to my final destination,
