Is Country Living or City Living better?
Many families and individuals find themselves at some point questioning the advantages of city living versus country living. It is nearly impossible to find a good answer to this question. What is good for one person might not be good for another. Some people enjoy the busy, hyper active life of the city where they can use all conveniences and have limitless opportunities for work and relaxation. At the same time, other people feel the desire to be closer to nature. They take pleasure in living in the calm and peaceful environment of the countryside and spending their free time riding four-wheelers, having bonfires, and going horse-back riding. Although country living and city living both have their own advantages country living is preferable because of its’ environment, work, and entertainment; I prefer country living to city living.
Out in the country it is very quiet. You can quickly get to where you need to go, because fewer people means less traffic. Most people live on five or more acres, so your neighbors can not bother you if they are a loud bunch. There are lots of places that you can ride four-wheelers, have bonfires, go horse-back riding, and tons of other things. The smell of fresh cut grass and being able to go outside at night and look up at the stars make the country that much more desirable.
City living is very busy. The city has way more pollution and a ton of cars and people. In the city area, the average person either catches the city buses, a taxi cab or subways to get around. These people love the attractiveness of downtown high rise buildings and the skyline. Some people love living right in the heart of the city so they normally rent town houses, apartments or buy homes. This way they are always close to everything they will need, but because of the high populations it might take one hour to go ten miles. This causes complications...
