Vienna Reviews

I love living in Vienna! Everything you need is right in the neighborhood and walking distance. There is public transportation, trails, parks, dog parks, shopping centers, and retail stores. The Mosaic District nearby offers lots of great dining options, shopping, and entertainment. Vienna is near the city, but far enough away to avoid the tourist crowds and traffic. It's super easy though to hop on the metro and get to the city within minutes. It's a dog-friendly city as well. The school system is also one of the best in the state.

Nice homes, good schools, good food places, jobs, and shopping areas. However, the people here seem very rude, unfriendly, unkind and stuck up and their school system puts way too much of a workload on the students which is why they shouldn't give them so much stress and let them enjoy themselves. Since Vienna is a small town, you will constantly see food places everywhere. The food is good but what theyre missing is retail stores. I'm sick of seeing all these food places everywhere and I'd like to see more retail to shop and for students to get part time jobs than to go to the heavy traffic in tysons with parking as a nightmare. Also, Vienna needs more rennovations for milennials to hang out bc streets especially like Church are boring as hell! Also, we need more roads to cut back traffic and the homes here seem way too expensive!!
I grew up in Vienna and still live there. It is a small town with not as much small town feeling but just enough, what with the growing Tysons City right next door. But it is easily a 20 minute metro ride to Washington DC. The area is very family-friendly and has a variety of options for entertainment, work, school, etc. Many of the neighborhoods are undergoing transformations as older, smaller houses are being torn down to be replaced by larger, more expensive houses. Metro access makes commuting a little easier, with a station to the orange line right in Vienna. But otherwise traffic can get unbearably congested all throughout the day on the main road through Vienna, so those who are more familiar with the area tend to use back roads. I really hope they look at ways to amend the traffic problem, especially as Tysons is beginning to swell with more residents.
