Can you identify this vine?

I've been told wild grapes and I've been told Virginia Creeper. But I don't know a thing about plants. I'd like to know what the wall cover on my office and garage is. Thank you in advance.

May be Boston Ivy? It's not Virginia Creeper, but it might be related.

Parthenocissus tricuspidata aka Boston Ivy. Virginia Creeper is Parthenocissus quinquefolia, so yes they are related.

Thanks Flora, I thought I'd read that somewhere. I knew it wasn't VC, as we have tons of that around here. They both have wonderful fall color!
