- Suburb in Virginia
Rating 4.36 out of 5 118 reviews
Grew up here. Lovely small town, great for families. FCPS is a strong public school system. As a young adult now, I prefer living in a larger city with more nighlife options and public transit, but I always enjoy visiting my parents in Vienna.
Low crime. Beautiful. The town is well run. All services are well delivered. A town green was built recently in the center of town. There is always something going on. A bike trail passes thru town. It goes to downtown Washington, D.C. in one direction and to the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains in the other. Dulles International Airport is only 20 minutes away.
Vienna is lovely, suburban town with a very tightly-knit community. The busy streets of Maple and Church are filled with aesthetic shops and stores, along with mainstream restaurants and eateries.
Very nice place to live. Decently walkable, nice neighbors, and lots of local businesses. The town holds lots of community events, including a carnival. I think the only main downside is the high real estate prices.
A great place! So many parks and recreation centers near by, and great place to enjoy walks. So many great stores and restaurants at reach. There are trails to go on bike ride, walks, and runs.
The people in the town are very nice, and I always feel safe. There are a lot of fun things to do in town and the food is amazing.
The town of Vienna is a nice and bustling town, filled with plenty of nice neighbors, a well off series of schools for children to pass through as they grow up, and a huge plethora of stores to visit on Maple Avenue, ranging from small diners such as Foster's Grill to various Supermarkets like Giants and Whole Foods. No matter what you need, Vienna has it for you.
Vienna is a very nice town that feels safe. It is very clean, and has many amenities. It's proximity to D.C. makes it very convenient. The schools in Vienna offer a great education.
I've called Vienna my home my entire life, and I am proud to do so. Situated 30 minutes away from the Nation's capitol, there are seemingly endless opportunities, both in town, and just a car ride away. The public schools are phenomenal, and my experience has set me on a path of academic success and achievement. As for the organizations in Vienna, there is literally an organization for everyone – gardening, history, finances, sports, you name it! And if there isn't one, you can make it. In sum, I've had a great childhood experience, and I attribute a lot of my good memories to living in Vienna.
Beautiful town to grow up in and to raise a family in. A variety of public schools in the area all with good curriculums and teachers. High priced homes, but beautiful neighborhoods. Lots of parks and community areas as well as a variety of independent restaurants.
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.)
Small town vibe but with city attractions, dining and entertainment. Plenty of parks and restaurants to explore and enjoy.
Since moving to Vienna, Virginia I am grateful for being in an area where a lot of my family lives. My family is from Fairfax county and I feel as if me being here continues a family legacy. I was born in Durham and moving to an area with more family, a little bit more diversity, and a better education system has helped me grow as an individual.
Vienna is a family friendly area. There is often a lot of traffic in the area coming from McLean and Tysons making commute time unreasonable at times. Additionally, Vienna isn't a very affordable are as prices are constantly rising and only offering minimal space. However, it has many great job opportunities.
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.
I would give 5 Stars, but due to expensive cost of living + heavy traffic + bugs & spiders + horrid humid hots summers I gave 3.
Cute suburban town with easy access to the metro and Washington, D.C. Good school system. Great shopping opportunities at the Tysons Corner Mall, Reston Town Center, and Mosaic pedestrian district nearby. Traffic gets bad.
