So cities can be better areas for low cost housing than out in the country or the suburbs. Because people can walk to work, it also makes

I was raised as a city girl in L.A. I've lived all but 7 years of my life in big cities (not by choice). I would give almost anything to return to semi-rural living. I'm very drawn to large, open vistas without the low roar of traffic, the whine of sirens, and watching helicopters every other night flying overhead with search lights.

There are many services and other stimulating things offered in larger cities. I found smaller towns provide more sense of community which was very attractive to me. As I read somewhere, it doesn't bother me that I have to drive more than 2 miles to find a Starbucks! (LOL)

In this world of people finding many ways to work via telecommuting, it removes some of the need to be near a hub of employment.
