Steve Bingham here, the agent behind YourVaHomeSearch. I grew up in the town of Vienna and still live there with my wife Kathleen and my children Lucy, Hope and Andy. Over the years the town has certainly changed, some for the good and some for the bad. Traffic has certainly gotten worse over the years. However, all in all most folks really enjoy the small town feel of Vienna.
The town of Vienna is an incorporated town, meaning you can live in the mailing address "Vienna" but not actually live in the town proper. Living in the town has certain benefits. Town residents enjoy their own police department, trash pick up, snow removal, etc. The town schools, fire department and libraries are managed by the larger Fairfax County. Town residents pay an additional real estate tax of 22.5 cents per $100 of the property's assessed value. This tax is addition to the Fairfax County's tax which is $1.09 per assessed value. The town lies just outside the capital beltway and is adjacent to Tysons Corner. Vienna's population is about 17,000. Vienna is the last stop on the Orange Line Metro system.
Vienna has several yearly events that contribute to Vienna's small town community feel. Yearly community events including; Viva Vienna, Stroll on the Hill, July 4th Fireworks, Halloween parade, and the Church Street Stroll. These are some of the larger events. In addition, the town has a seasonal farmers market. Here is a link to list of all the events in Vienna Events in Vienna VA
Vienna is part of the Fairfax County School system, one of the best in the country. The county has several high schools ranked in the top 200 of all high schools in the country per US New & World Report. US News & World Report High School Rankings. Residents of the town of Vienna are primarily served by James Madison High School. However, Vienna students also attend Oakton HS and George C. Marshall HS.
One of my favorite activities is biking on the W&OD path. The path runs from Shirlington to Purcellville VA, a total of almost 45 miles. I enjoy a long bike ride and then a couple of craft beers at Whole Foods which sits right next to the trail in the heart of Vienna!
The real estate market in Vienna has remained steady, even during the down turn that impact most of the country. The town is mostly comprised on single family detached homes. There are couple of condo buildings, particularly around the Vienna Metro station. The town has a fair number of town home communities.
