Ratings and reviews of Vienna

"Wonderful Community"

Great place for kids to grow up. Lots of extracuricular activities and lots of parks within walking distance. Community Center has lots to offer as well as a top notch athetic fields with artificial turf so youth football, lacrosse and baseball can play no matter what the weather.

Lots of parents volunteer in the many youth sports activities and the schools are some of the most highly rated in the country.

We have two wonderful music venues: Wolf Trap which is always the highlight of my summer and Jammin Java has lots of indie bands with great chili.

The town now has a center green park that during the summer they have free music on Friday or Saturday nights.

Vienna is very walkable and almost every street in town has a sidewalk. There are many restaurants and I think 4 wine stores.

Lots of fitness facilities, the W&O bike path, tennis courts at numerous parks in Vienna as well as many summer pool and tennis clubs.

Very safe, call the police and they will literally be at your door in 3 to 5 minutes.

The Vienna Metro is great for those that work downtown and there are buses running thoughout Vienna to other localities.

Great hospitals are close by and we have a library.

Shopping: best shopping in DC is only 2 miles away at Tyson's Corner.

What would I change? I wish they had built a route around town so that Rt 123 wouldn't be such a travel nightmare. I am able to avoid the traffic by driving back routes.

What would prohibit a lot of people from living here are the housing costs. Many million dollar homes, but still even the small homes go for $450K.
