We had so much fun with this year's Love Where You Live Photo Contest. We had 265 photo submitted from 55 different photographers. Thank you to all who participated and helped us tell of the many reasons why we love where we live!
The days are getting shorter and the weather crisper. If you’re looking for a fun way to appreciate the beauty of this season but don't want to travel very far, then look no further than Charlottesville, Virginia.
Charlottesville is a short drive from Richmond, only about an hour from anywhere in the capital city in fact, but feels like another world with wide expanses of farm land, rolling foothills and towering Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance. This rural setting is the perfect place to appreciate nature's beauty and observe the vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows of the changing autumn leaves. According to the Virginia Department of Forestry, the typical fall foliage peak color period for this region is October 25th through November 10th.
The Liz Moore Love Where You Live Photo Contest is highlighting photos in the "Special Places" category during the month of August. Submit your photos at www.lizmoore.com/love and we'll select winners from that category at the end of the month.
A short drive away, the beautiful Northern Neck invites you to escape to the tranquil land by the Chesapeake Bay. The Northern Neck is a great place to get away from it all while enjoying Virginia's beautiful coastline.
The Northern Neck is comprised of five historic counties including King George, Westmoreland, Richmond, Lancaster, and Northumberland Counties. This region abounds with natural beauty, history, wildlife, local
seafood and wine, recreation, shopping, hospitality, and more.
The waterfront is the biggest attraction in the Northern Neck and there are so many ways to enjoy the Rappahannock and Potomac Rivers and the Chesapeake Bay! Enjoy a cruise across the Chesapeake Bay from historic Reedville at the tip of Virginia's Northern Neck to quaint Smith Island, only 13 miles away, yet a world apart. You'll see the crabbers and the fascinating soft-shell crab "farms" as you come into Smith Island. Rent a kayak or paddle boat or charter a boat for the day to enjoy the area's pristine waters and beaches.

With temperatures heating up, we’re all looking for places to cool down. Waterparks are the perfect place for the whole family to cool off together and have some fun. Luckily, there are many options just a short drive away, making a trip to the waterpark the perfect summer day trip!
