I am a Northern Virginia transplant like, but I’ve also been stricken with wanderlust. While I have been fortunate to see a nice chunk of the world, I am also have fallen in love with Northern Virginia. Sometimes, I think “NoVA” gets a bad rap. You hear the words, “suburbs,” “boring,” “bedroom community,” and “too much traffic,”. But here’s the amazing part. This is a part of the country with extraordinary diversity, lush landscapes, and always fun activities to take part in.

I hope you enjoy following along as I cover parks, events, restaurants and festivals across Greater Northern Virginia.
