Life in Vienna, VA

Like many Northern Virginia communities, Vienna has a very rich history going back to the 18th Century. In 1754 Colonel Charles Broadwater first settled here and in 1767 his son-in-law, Mr. John Hunter built the town’s first home. Dr. William Hendrick and his family moved into the area in the 1850s and decided the town should be named “Vienna” after Hendrick’s New York hometown.

A decade after that, Vienna was home to one of the Civil War’s earliest battles, which broke out on the railroad tracks. Troops had never been transported by train before when Confederate forces ambushed them in a clash that historians named the Battle of Virginia. From that point on both sides camped in Vienna and when the war was over, many simply stayed and built lives with their families.

Vienna remained a quiet little rural town for decades until the 1950s when urban development started to encroach. Despite this growth, Vienna has remained true to its roots and to this day offers a peaceful reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the Capital.

Many of Vienna’s institutions and traditions have been preserved to give it a certain small-town charm, even though it has plenty of amenities. The town is filled with mom-and-pop businesses with many residents supporting their community by shopping locally whenever they can. Fresh produce and locally made products are sold weekly at farmers markets, and there are always fundraisers on behalf of local nonprofits and schools.

The town is known for family-friendly events throughout the year. These include April’s Walk on the Hill Garden Tour, the ViVa! Vienna Town Festival to celebrate Memorial Day, the Halloween Parade and December’s Holiday Stroll. A whole range of events occur all year long at the Vienna Community Center, including fashion shows, craft fairs, antique exhibits, and etc. The family-friendly warmth of Vienna appeals to homebuyers who appreciate the cohesiveness and small-town feel of this neighborhood.

Things To Do in Vienna

With less than 16,000 residents, people often think of Vienna as being a sleepy little hamlet. Despite its outward appearance, Vienna has plenty to offer when it comes to restaurants, shops, art galleries, music venues and theaters. Downtown Vienna is alive with many enjoyable activities, including historic sites, a variety of shops, and owner-operated restaurants. Vienna’s cultural diversity is its most charming asset, with an eclectic restaurant district drawing visitors from all over.

For more exciting options, residents can head out to Tysons Corner Shopping Center & Galleria to shop at upscale boutiques and enjoy fine dining. However, all basic conveniences are easily attainable in Vienna, so residents can get everything they need close by without leaving their community.

For those who love attending outdoor performances and concerts, Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts is located right in Vienna providing entertainment throughout the year. This unique venue attracts audiences from far and wide and is the only U.S. National Park devoted to the performing arts. 

Meadowlark Gardens Regional Park is also a hub of activity in Vienna, where residents come to immerse themselves in the beauty of nature. You can wile away an afternoon walking through the exquisitely landscaped gardens and lakes filled with fluttering ducks and geese and gaze at nature’s critters from a charming gazebo on Lake Caroline.

For a variety of outdoor activities, residents can choose among several different public parks with playgrounds, athletic fields and trails that includes a 45-mile bicycle path.
