Dear Business Owner:
Pleasant Living—or PL as we have come to be known—is an out-of-the-ordinary complimentary bimonthly magazine for Virginia’s River Country—a publication unlike any other in the region. In a few words, PL offers a fresh and folksy perspective on life and culture in the River Country, and since 1989, has become a name spoken around dinner tables from Richmond to the tip of the Virginia’s Northern Neck. One reader commented that PL is “about an experience that can’t be bought.” We think that says it all.
For over two decades we’ve celebrated life and culture in the River Country and captured the essence of the people and the place we call home. We write about people making a difference—perhaps your next door neighbor— food and wine, nature and the outdoors, gardening, history, and also publish book reviews, commentary, and memorable images by regional photographers. PL is about what makes life here unlike any other place.
Published in glossy black and white, PL is both nostalgic and contemporary—not a stereotypical four-color lifestyle magazine. Our simple, artful style and genuine voice bring readers and advertisers back year after year. And now, PL Online offers a new and exciting digital world with great editorial, and much more. Our online advertising program is the most affordable in the region.
Our very devoted readership is interested in reading intelligent, well-written stories about a range of compelling topics. They appreciate village, town and rural life and the singular lifestyle only Virginia’s River Country offers.
PLis distributed throughout Virginia’s Northern Neck, Middle Peninsula, the Peninsula, as well as in Richmond, Yorktown, and Fredericksburg and reaches an estimated 35,000 readers every other month. Add to that our online audience, which is expanding to even wider territory.
Advertising in PL is more than just an ad. Our advertisers recognize that their association with PL will connect them with a devoted family-oriented readership unequalled in the region, and that we take extra steps to market our advertisers beyond the ad that appears in our magazine.
PL is the only regional magazine that can boast 98% pick-up at newsstands. No other publication in the region can match this level of pick-up.
Once you read us, we know you’ll agree that PL is a special voice you won’t read anywhere else, and that we offer a powerful vehicle to enhance and brand your company’s image. Call or e-mail us for more information, and visit us online at pleasantlivingmagazine.com.
Here’s to the pleasant life!
