The small town atmosphere is characterized by a low crime rate, small locally- and regionally-owned businesses, and moderately priced homes.

Vinton represents the ideal type of community, small enough to provide a feeling of "belonging," yet progressive enough to provide the facilities, services, and conveniences that are necessary to make a community "home" to its citizens.
