I love the excitement of big cities. Small towns have a slow pace. Large cities mean you have to adapt to a variety of situations, like finding a new route to work or t1ying a new restaurant. I enjoy that challenge ve1y much. Another pan of the excitement of city living is the variety of cultural activities available. There is a wide assmtment of theatre, music and dance perfmmances available in big cities. These things are rare in small ones. The fmal thing I like about large cities is the diversity of the people. The United States is made up of people of different races, religions, abilities, and interests. However, you seldom fmd such a variety of people in a smaller town. I think that living in an area where eve1yone was just like me would quickly become boring.
Of course, security is a concem, and that's one area where small towns are superior to big cities. Still, I would rather be a bit more cautious and live in a large city than to feel secure but bored.
