Vienna is a very open-minded town. It's beautiful, full of friendly people, and rich with life. There's plenty of places to grab brunch with friends or study during your free time. There's always at least a couple new shops popping up and looking for employees! It's the best place to move if you're looking for a safe, cozy, passionate town!

Vienna is a really great place to grow up / raise a family. It is close enough to the city, public transportation, Tyson's corner, and plenty of restaurants, while maintaining a homey town like atmosphere. School's are good, and there is plenty of green. All around great place to live!
For the short amount of time I have lived in Vienna, Virginia, I have attended several festivals and events, all of which, in my opinion, contribute to the diversity of this small town. Having attended Fairfax County Public Schools since 7th grade, I always felt safe and accepted. At first, struggling to associate myself with just one identity, Armenian or American, I soon realized the benefits of having a double identity. Living in Vienna, meeting so many people, and attending middle and high school there, I began to realize that I could serve as a cross bridge for my peers and my neighborhood, fostering a caring and diverse community. Really, Vienna and I have a special mutualistic relationship; the past 4 years have taught me more than I could learn in a lifetime.
