Vienna is the closest residential town to the big city of Parkersburg, WV. Consisting of coffee shops, swimming pools, and many side streets, this is a nice place for children to grow up. Vienna contains the closest mall for Parkersburg and Vienna residents, which holds jewellery shops, sports shops, clothing stores, and a great food court.

Family friendly area, swimming pools, playgrounds, hiking trails, ballfields, and more. Job prospects are generally low, along with the rest of the area, but it's overall a great place to live.
There is a great sense of small town feeling, howwever, the school systems and crime rate are slowly starting to become a bigger problem. There is also a problem with the healthiness of living in this area, because of the multiple chemical plants that are in this and the surrounding area. While it is a good place to live, it has seen better days and I hope that one day it can be as great as it was before, a safe small town with lots of caring citizens.
