    Which one do you like better, city or rural living?

    Jobwise, kind of interests you have, proximity to relatives etc., which one is important for you when choosing where to live?

    And if  you can choose which area to live, do you like rural or city living?

    Well, I've lived in large & smaller cities, rural areas, towns, suburbs, and my preference is city. 
    Reason #1:  I like to be able to get around on foot;
    Reason #2:  I like the atmosphere-  people & noise  smile

    First of all, I think you have to live in both to fully appreciate the benefits each offer. I grew up in a small town in Texas so when I went off to college, I missed the idea of knowing the clerks in the local stores, the vacancy of traffic, and the silence that puts your soul at ease. When I moved back home for the summer, I realized how much I missed the large town atmosphere, the abundance of activity's offered, the job opportunities, and the plethora of golf courses. I can now say that I prefer rural living more, but don't get me wrong, I still visit my small town at least twice a year!

    I have experienced both and though there are conveniences to living in the city, like near by grocery and gas and things in walking distance or availability of transit system, the rural country by far satisfies my needs with her beauty and peace.  I also notice that neighbors are more friendly in rural areas.

    Neither, I believe there is a time or if you will a season for both. I have lived in a small town in both Northern Ontario and rural Florida. I have also lived in relatively big cities, that would be Toronto, Ontario, Miami and Orlando, Florida.
    I was lucky if I had not been in living in an urban area (Orlando) close to a high level hospital I may not have survived a comatose experience. However, during my late teens and most of my 20s I lived in a remote area north of Lake Superior and had such wonderful experiences and interacted with such beautiful and awesome nature all around me. It was spectacular! Likewise in a small town in rural Florida, we had a horse (quarter horse), adopted a wild mustang and lived in a wonderful fly-in ranch community that was amazing and most wonderful for us. However, we had to move in order for me to complete graduate school (we could not do this from a rural town in Florida back in the 80s). Besides, I couldn't continue to pursue my great attachment, called ice hockey from a rural Florida town that was iceless.
    I have come to realize that we have gained significant benefit from both rural and urban- dense living. As we approach our senior years living where we do now may serve us well since our urban area has lots of services within walking distance of where we live and there are numerous hospitals around us. However, I am more inclined to think that we would benefit more by having both an urban place in proximity to services and a remote cottage either beach-side, in the mountains or an interesting and more rural location somewhere upon our earth...

    I'm a little-big city person. I love the feel of a big city but not with the big-city costs and the overwhelming hustle and bustle. With big cities there's always SO much to do you never really feel like you can do everything. I'm not really hip on rural living either, because it's so much harder to get around, and it's a little too quiet. I like to be able to walk to places, hop on the bus or train, and move around a city easily.
