Vienna, VA


Small town vibes in a picturesque community with high walkability, history, and outdoor fun

Welcome to Vienna

With accessibility to the Capital Region, there is no amenity you can’t find.

Locals have a booming sense of pride in their community and the relationships built within each neighborhood. Top festivals held annually include the Viva Vienna Festival (Memorial Day weekend) and Oktoberfest (beginning of October). Music lovers enjoy attending an indoor or outdoor concert at the only National Park devoted to music and entertainment.

Local Lifestyle

Vienna is a charming place to call home with a small-town feel but minutes from the big city life of Washington, D.C. The high walkability factor fosters connections in this strong community and family-oriented section of Northern Virginia.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

The place for residents to eat, drink, shop, and connect with one another is in the charming and historic area of Vienna. Everything you may need can be found on the parallel streets of Church Street or Maple Ave. Take a leisurely stroll down either street and be greeted by friendly business owners welcoming you into their establishments. Both a museum and gift shop, the Freeman Store & Museum has custom and handmade items that make the perfect gift.
There is no shortage of excellent restaurants to choose from, ranging from classic Italian to American, farm-to-table, and cozy coffee shops. If you are in search of handmade pasta that will please the palate, you will find traditional Italian dishes at Bonaroti Restaurant that are sure to be a hit. For an Italian cantina-style restaurant serving delicious favorites in a warm atmosphere, Pazzo Pomodoro has a table for you.
American cuisine is perfected at Bazin’s on Church (New American bistro), Vienna Inn (an eclectic and casual restaurant with vintage vibes), and Clarity (elevated New American in an open kitchen layout). Craving fresh farm-to-table dishes? Order up at Caboose Brewing Company & Tavern, where you can enjoy fresh ingredients with a local brew (beer and coffee) and a great local hang-out spot for friends and neighbors. Another favored coffee shop is the sustainable Caffe Amouri which serves excellent small-batch roasts.

Things to Do

Vienna has a wide variety of fun attractions residents can enjoy year-round. Those in search of beautifully manicured green spaces can wander through the Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, with several paths, lakes, and gardens to view. The Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts is the only national park in the country that is centered around music and the arts. Within the 117-acre park, year-round indoor and outdoor concerts are part of the Wolf Trap Concerts program that is a hit with locals.
In the summer months, bring your chairs or blankets and catch a live concert each Friday at the Town Green Summer Events. Or attend a play at the Vienna Theatre Company, the performing arts theater. Meet up with friends and family of all ages to hear live music at the intimate venue, Jammin Java. Grab your concert tickets early as this is one of the most popular music spaces in the Vienna and Washington D.C. area.
For a day of adventure, explore the wild at Roer’s Zoofari, where you can go on a safari tram, and visit a petting zoo, butterfly garden, and tortoise yard. Looking to add a cute and cuddling addition to the household? You can provide a loving home by fostering or adopting a dog or cat from Wolf Trap Animal Rescue.
