I grew up rural - actually to be more specific - Suburbia. I grew up in large neighborhoods where you had to go a long way before you got out of the houses. Growing up, that's all I remember seeing for the most part - houses, and more houses. You had to drive to get to the stores or anywhere else. As an adult, I've visited friends in Urban areas, but never lived it myself. I can see the advantages to Urban living, such as being VERY close to other people, being near stores and etc, and being able to walk most places and use public transportation. But I'm a rural gal at heart. I love seeing open fields (since I never really got to see any as a child except on vacations). So I prefer the towns in the far suburbs. You're close to people within town, but just outside of town there is open land.

Hi there, i think I have the same opinion as you.I am a village boy. But,as time goes around,I need to be balance the needs of relationship between these two worlds.

I am on the suburbs now. I used to live in Urban community for my whole life. I like urban community better. More choices, more entertainment, less driving. In the other hand, I like my peace and quiet time on the suburbs....

Well in my life I have experienced both kinds of living. I enjoy the rural community and also the urban. However I have moved to an area which is in Alabama that is south to where I lived most of my life. I used to live in a more urban community. There were more buildings,buses and just more ways of getting around. I live in a more country area where it is kind of silent and not much way to get around without a car. To tell you the truth I miss the city life.
