On the Road Again: Washington, VA

There are so many restaurants opening every day in the DC area, it’s hard to keep track, let alone try each one! However, as much as I love spending time eating my way through the city, I also enjoy visiting the Virginia countryside. There’s just something about getting away from the daily hustle and bustle and truly immersing yourself in the tranquil ambiance. One of those places is the rural town of Washington, VA; barely an hour from DC, Washington, VA is a town most renowned for its exceptional culinary experience - The Inn At Little Washington. My husband and I recently dined at The Inn for my birthday and made a weekend out of exploring this quaint town along with the VA countryside.
