Wolf Trap is an awesome area with great school and fun places to work and eat! The community is super family friendly and great to live in! So many beautiful homes! Close distance to Vienna, McLean, Langley, Tysons Corner, Alexandria, and Washington, D.C. Lots of main roads and highways are close enough to access easily but far enough so you don’t hear the cars or have any safety risks (I-66, VA-267, I-495, I-395, VA-123, and more!

This particular area hosts an overall positive atmosphere and community, as well as a large degree of safety and security associated with an adept local government and a low crime rate. If I lived in another location and under different circumstances, I would personally choose, if given the opportunity to live here, to move here again.
Vienna was and has continuously been the perfect place to grow from child through adolescence to adulthood. The town and community that is Vienna offers a secure, vibrant threshold of culture and memory in which all can find happiness and thrive. Summers in Vienna and green, warm, and full of life. If you're looking for a community in which you can feel at home incessantly, Vienna is for you.
