I like living in a city which is a blend of both..a little urbanisation on the other hand a green countryside. If you have best of both in a town or city it would be good to be in such a place. I hate cities that are too fast paced and i would not like to stay in a completely rural area too. I need a mixture of both

I live in a city. But if I found a job for my rest life in the country mybe I would move. THough my son has more possibilities in the city than in the country. Hm.

I prefer province, my heart always longing for it. I miss the beauty of its mountain, beaches, lake, rice fields, rivers and peoples. I'm here in city for job and money which sadly to say is hard to find in province.

I am right now living in between. Not exactly the city and not exacatly a province. We are only a few minutes away from the city and a half hour away from the province. Its the best place I've lived since its very quiet here. I would rather live in the province where the air is still clean compared to the very noisy city.

I like living in the country because of the peace and quiet. I like living in the city because of the convenience of eveything. I love in the city now and am glad since gasoline prices have gone up so much. In the country you must drive for many miles for groceries, gasoline or anything elese important. I would like to go back to the country if the gasoline problem is ever fixed.

I'm totally a city girl, I like the country and animals, and being alone in nature, w/o any interruptions, but I'm now more of a city girl, I like excitement, and having something to do, I'm a bit high-strung and hate sitting still with nothing to do. For instance, my town Lawrence, all you can do is go shopping, out to eat, go to a movie, go to a museum, etc. Everything fun is at least a half hour to an hour away (Kansas City or Topeka), so unless you like driving, there isn't anything to do.

although i grew up in a small town and sometimes dream of moving to the country, i’ve found that living lightly can sometimes be easier in a city. in our multicultural neighborhood, one attitude everyone shares — regardless of background — is respect for healthy lifestyles. ....i chose to live in this neighborhood because people walk everywhere, cars slow down for pedestrians and bikes, nearly everyone gardens, and fresh food is readily available...

I've lived in both the city and the country, over all I prefer the country. I like having space between my neighbor and me. I like not having to hear the cars and the sirens that I seem to hear all the time. I really hate having to listen to my neighbors and knowing that they can hear me as well. I like to have space around me not only for me but also for my pets. I also love being able to look up at the sky at night in the country. There are no lights from the city to take away from the stars. I miss that.

I would personally prefer living in the city. Sometimes i feel to run away from this rush hour life but then many a times i have been to my grandpa`s house. But it becomes very slow and boring there. SO then i have to move back to the city. I would prefer City mostly. Thanks
