urban vs rural living

Am I the only one who thinks urban life is superior to rural life? Due to circumstances beyond my control I live in a small town at the moment, and although its a beautiful place I would move back to a city in a heartbeat. Living in the country is even worse-Boring! I have also tried living in the suburbs of Chicago, and it couldn't compare to living in the city itself. When I tell people this, though, they look at me like I'm crazy.

People are unique and so are their preferences. While you may be bored with the rural life, I can find solitude in it. I have always been a country girl by heart. It is so nice to grow up in a country side. When I will retire I want to come back to the country side and spend the rest of my remaining life there living in a farm. Currently I am living in the suburbs where you get the best of both the rural and urban life. In suburbs you get to experience clean living with fresh air and the laid back lifestyle of a rural life. You get to personally know your neighbors. It is very conducive for a child to grow in a suburb where he can play with the other children in the neighborhood and not worry about pollution. Prices of houses are even cheaper than those offered in the city. What is good living in a suburb is that it is just near the comforts of the city. You can always experience the city life and it is always near to the best schools in the country. Plus there are more employment choices here. Basically you get the best of both worlds living in a suburb.
