Well, I moved from a town of 13k people, that was smack in the middle between Ocean City and Rehoboth Beach and Annapolis/Baltimore/Washington, about an hour from either... back to the town of my birth, which is like 100k people with sprawling suburbs. I've been back since January, '03... and I have to say I miss where I was. The traffic and roads up here are horrible. <_<

I prefer a Rural lifestyle as thats how I've always lived. Ideal situation would be to live out in the countryside with a 20 minute drive at the most away from a city/town/urban area. I just enjoy the freedoms of a rural lifestyle too much to want to live in an urban area. I can make as much noise as I want, shoot my guns at clay targets whenever I want, no crime, I can ride my atv's whenever I want, just a bunch of stuff I can do here that I can't do in the city.

I like rural areas in small doses. I get bored in a totally rural place. I prefer the (relative) excitement of urban living. I'd like to live in a place with rural attributes (woodsy backyard with a creek/river) but still be in a urban setting.

I don't think I could live either in Manhatten or Nowheresville Nebraska. Suburbs outside a large city, thank you very much.

Can I get a mix of both? Anyone thats been to Lexington, KY knows how rural it is for a city. Its very spread out. Lousiville is too urban for me, and purely rural is too boring. I think Lexington is perfect.

AMEN!

My surroundings are pretty ideal... Real rural (Where I live) and a pretty big city about 5-10 minutes away.

Yeah, truth be told a nice rural spot outside an urban area is ideal. I do enjoy the low noise/traffic of it here, plus the ATV riding.

I used to be a hardcore urban dweller. I was born and raised in Chicago- actually in Chicago, not in Evanston or Skokie as some will try to tell you (that's still a huge peeve of mine: "Where you from?" "Chicago." Really, what part"? "Schaumburg." *smack!*).

Anyway, a few years ago it started getting to me- the crowding, the people, the madness. Esp. driving, it was no longer fun. Living on the North side for over 30 years, I knew the place like the back of my hand, and it was fun driving those streets as their self-appointed king. Unfortunately, as I matured, I noticed how awful other people behaved in the anonymity of their vehicles- they'd drive right over you to get a single car length ahead in traffic, and they'd drive like they were the only car on the road. Never mind using turn signals. It got so bad that I would be completely beside myself with rage by the time I got home from work. I hated having to go out because it was all just too much.

We moved to Park Ridge, just outside the city, and it's night and day. Less crowding on the roads, and people actually seem to notice each other. (It's probably not even all that less, but it sure feels like it.) Lynne and I really look forward to pushing even further out from the city someday, into what you might call the boonies. Some small city or large town somewhere, maybe 50k or so in population, someplace where quiet country roads are just out beyond the WalMart, not 90 minutes away. Someplace where people actualyl see each other, maybe even take care to avoid offending or causing inconvenience.

I think I'm def. becoming more of a rural spirit as I grow older; Lynne too, we keep trying to think of what we could do for money in some small town somewhere. :)

I like the urban lifestyle, places to eat etc.. That and my job pretty much dictates thats where I'll be for the forseeable future. But I enjoy my time away from it all.

This should be a poll (with "suburban" added to the list)

I'm with Brandon & FOG: rural near a suburban area. Unfortunately, that's becoming increasingly difficult to obtain in NJ. Traffic sucks.

What he said. NYC is fine for a few weeks, but after that, it gets expensive.

For me it doesn't really matter, as long as I have a shelter that doesn't leak :P But to choose, subrban. I'd then have the convenience of urban, without the urban noise.

I'd expect that in a bedroom state for NYC and Philly....

Rural all the way.... I mean, I can deal with the lack of people, stores, and stuff like that for the freedom. The possibilies are unlimited. I can... ride my ATV anywhere I want, make bombs, shoot my gun, have loud parties... Damn, just about anything. Again the downside is being away from everything, which, can be a bitch. I like to walk and drive around streets and sidewalks for some reason... but otherwise I'm a loner so I can and will happily deal with living rural. Long live Rural! :P

Rural: Give me a old farmhouse with a big barn (garage/hot rod shop) and lots of private acres (car storage) in a small town with nice spread out neighbors (no bitching about my cars & noise fropm the shop) :)

Suburban, I guess. My ideal locale would actually be a small town within about 20 min. of a city.

Bingo. Both areas would get tiring after awhile.
