Working in Vienna
Vienna is a great town for moseying around and has a great selection of restaurants. There are quite a few locally owned businesses in town, which is great, but the downside is that much of our town is being curated and turned into a somewhat chichi area. There's currently a lot of construction going on, which makes the whole town feel a little louder and a lot less special. We're quickly turning into a big town with less character, but if you've been here a long time or know someone who has, you can find the local gems. (Check out Culinaria Cooking School! They have some really cool classes.)
Vienna is a small town in Northern Virginia with many different people. My favorite thing about it is how close everything is to each other. I'm easily able to walk to my friends' house to a restaurant within a matter of minutes. Because of the close proximity, all of the friendly residents know each other and frequently run into one another. Additionally, the public schools are some of the best in the country and offer exceptional courses and opportunities for students. As a junior at Madison High school, I look forward to going to school every day to see both my friends and teachers who have taught me much more than just the required curriculum. There is however a lot of pressure put on students to perform their best. While this does push them, it can add some stress, which at times can be difficult to manage. Additionally, Vienna is a competitive town in every sense of the word. From academics to club sports, Vienna runs at a face pace and for some, it can be hard to keep up.
Vienna is a very nice suburb to live in. There are plenty of restaurants, there is an old town feel in part of it. The schools are good and offer rigorous courses like International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement on top of standard high school classes. The houses are decently sized, some are smaller and some are quite large, and age varies. The one problem with Vienna is its lack of diversity, most of the people are middle aged and white. There aren't many young adults (minus children/families) or minorities. In all, it is a safe choice of residence if you are looking for a steady quiet place.
