How long have you lived in Winchester? Nearly my whole life! I was born here, went to school here, met my husband here, and came back after graduating from college (J-M-U Duuuukes). 

What's your favorite place to eat in Winchester? This is such a difficult question and I think my answer would vary depending on the time of day, day of the week, how hungry I am, etc. I'll settle with my top three: Sona (my husband and I love Indian), Roma's (hello wood-fired pizza), and Patsy's  Pastry Pizzas (unique non-traditional pizzas for lunch).

I'm new to the area, what would you recommend I do my first weekend in town? Welcome! I'd definitely recommend walking on Loudoun Street and browsing the shops. Grab a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants (it's really hard to go wrong) then watch a show at the Bright Box. Shenandoah University also houses many talented artists and performers as well as Winchester Little Theater. If you're an outdoor adventurer you can hike in nearby Shenandoah National Park, walk the Green Circle, tube down the river, or kayak on Lake Frederick. And if you have kids, you should check out the Children's Museum on Cork Street or explore the local parks

If you could change one thing about the town what would it be? Actually, this is a pretty easy question for me. I would add bike lanes or a biking area (think Route 9 in Martinsburg or along the C&O Canal). There's nothing quite like flying over pavement and it'd be great to bike to school, work, or downtown in a safer manner.

Describe your ideal day. I'd start off the day with coffee (Hideaway Cafe anyone?), go kayaking on Lake Saint Clair, eat downtown for lunch, and have friends over for a big bonfire and party. And if there's a s'more or two thrown in there that's the cherry on top!
