carnivalNestled in the bustling Northern Virginia/National Capital region, just 15 miles outside of Washington, D.C., the Town of Vienna offers a bit of an unexpected oasis that recalls a traditional hometown and charming neighborhoods. It’s a place where distinctive small-town friendliness, enormous hometown pride, and cherished traditions come together.

Visitors will enjoy the atmosphere along Maple Avenue (Route 123), which features specialty shops, an array of restaurants, family-run businesses, and small stores. Stroll down historic Church Street or take a leisurely drive through Vienna's Windover Heights Historic District via Pleasant Street.  Vienna is a safe, vibrant, and welcoming community, whether visiting for a night of fine dining or settling down to build a home.  Be sure to check out the many activities and attractions in and around the Town of Vienna.

What others have to say

“The location and the community are what make Vienna great. I love being able to walk everywhere—to Whole Foods, restaurants, the library, schools, the trail, the woods. I am grateful that my kids are able to attend outstanding schools and be involved in fun activities with their friends. I love that Vienna is full of smart, friendly people who care about each other and the Town as a whole.”

- Christina Caplan

 “People are educated, welcoming, diverse, and look out for one another. The schools are great. We’re close to Tysons and now Mosaic. What is not to love?”

- Sohini Baliga

“Our residents have such a sense of pride in Vienna, which feels like small-town America with some amazing perks of the most cosmopolitan of cities: world class restaurants, great schools, shop owners who know you by name, an emerging arts scene, and nationally respected nonprofits that enhance our life here.  As one of my out-of-state visiting friends said to me during their stay: ‘This Town just seems to have a special feel to it.’”

- Lu Cousins

“We have a delightfully eclectic small business community that includes locally owned businesses such as independent bookstores, coffee shops, and pet spas as well as an amazing selection of restaurants representing delicious food from around the globe.  In addition, Vienna has an amazing altruistic vibe.... There is always something to do and a friendly face to run into!”

- Peggy James

“I like Vienna because it is a great place to raise kids. Vienna is my hometown; even as a child, it was a great place: the friendly neighbors, the freedom to walk around town; accessible Town officials; ice cream at Freddie’s (now the Vienna Inn); feeling comfortable wherever I went.  As an adult with my own kids, the feelings are similar: friendly neighbors, good schools, lots of events for children, great restaurants.  And the Halloween Parade!”

- Gloria Runyon

“Vienna, I came for the (shorter) commute and stayed for the community.  I found community with my neighbors and after retiring became active via a Town commission.  I became an active cyclist so living near the W&OD Trail has been huge for me.”
