Other than the few years we lived in North Carolina, I’ve called Virginia home for my entire life. I actually live right at the state line of Virginia and North Carolina but Virginia is technically my home.
Even thought I seem to be pulled towards North Carolina more than Virginia, Virginia has some pretty great things. The only problem is, most of those things are in northern Virginia which is like a 5 hour one way trip for me. However, Virginia packed full of lots of history which is great for a history living nerd like me!
Virginia has beaches, mountains and everything in between so there is no surprise that you’ll find Southern favorites and fresh seafood in this state! Plus, Virginia is known for it’s ham!
Here are 10 of the Best Virginia recipes to give you a little slice of my home state!
