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.

I love living in Vienna, VA. It is quiet yet lively. There are plenty of family friendly activities and functions facilitators by the county and others sponsored by local organizations. There are plenty of restaurants that offer excellent cuisine as well as an inviting and enjoyable atmosphere. Antique stores are prevalent on Maple Ave and the historic Church St. I have resided in two different neighborhoods with the town of Vienna and had friendly neighbors each time. I highly recommend others to reside here.
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!!
