My main question is this: Would you rather live someplace that had a higher cost of living, but so many methods of transportation..and everything would be within walking or biking distance, or........
live someplace where the cost of living was lower, but gas,car insurance and car payments come into play. I guess I ask this because there seems to be more people that bike or walk to work now..at least, more than there used to be.
This is really a 'swings and roundabout' decision to make. I suppose ultimately it depends on your long term plans.
If you have secured a good job that is well paid, your living arrangements is dependant on location. However, if you are in such a position as to choose where you live, then look for a job. I would personally go for the lower cost of living area first.
