Vienna’s Small Community Welcomes New Residents Seeking A Fulfilling Life
Located in northern Fairfax County, Virginia and considered a part of the Washington Metropolitan area, the city of Vienna has held onto its small town community charm despite the bustling changes that have occurred during the 100 years it has been in existence. It is an affluent city with a population of over 15,000. People make an annual median household income of over $112,000, as many of the residents make the daily work commute to Washington D.C. that is 12 miles away.
People who decide to make Vienna their home can enjoy all the local attractions and amenities it has to offer while still being able to travel easily to larger cities for the regular vacation or weekend trip. For people looking for a permanent home in the Washington Metropolitan area, many select Vienna due to its relaxing lifestyle and small community charm.
The town has an active community festival and event calendar for people of all ages. Stay in town to enjoy the local attractions or travel to the capital to see the many monuments. Whichever you decide, you won’t ever have a dull moment.
Walking tours are the rage in the city. Every April, there are spring garden tours along the historic district streets allowing people to get in the mood for spring while they also host the Holiday Stroll in November after Thanksgiving so people can look at all the sights and sounds of the holiday season. During Memorial Day weekend, the town holds its annual festival “Viva Vienna.” Live music, entertainment and business vendors flood the streets for several days of celebration. In addition, there are the annual 4th of July celebrations, Oktoberfest activities and the Halloween parades.
There are four major parks in Vienna that welcomes a host of different sporting events or outdoor activities: Glyndon, Northside, Southside and Meadow Lane. Play a round of tennis on the courts, watch a baseball game, or take the kids along the nature trails so they can learn more about the environment. People can also enjoy hiking, biking or just a picnic lunch on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
If you want a day out on the town, get the girls together for some pampering. The city of Vienna has massage parlors, hair salons, retail stores and gift shops. After a day of shopping, go to one of the 75 restaurants available in the city that can suit your appetite. Enjoy a nice bistro lunch at the Bazins on Church or partake in more eclectic cuisine at the Maple Avenue Restaurant.
If you are looking for a place that fits your affluent lifestyle, is in easy driving distance to Washington D.C., and has a small community feeling, go to Vienna, Virginia. Once you become a resident, you won’t ever want to leave.
