And to the fat a$$ at the station coment, REALLY??!!!! The COUNTRY is the most peaceful place or earth..... My hubby and I have a GRAND time EVERYDAY!! My grandchildren are being raised with knowing of how to love and have respect for thierselves and others....We don't worry about driveby's or someone trying to push dope, sex, or trying to molest them.... And as far as having too drive in to town for any reason, that just gives us another excuse to have a conversation with each other......Hate it that your missing out!!! NOT REALLY!!!!!

Wow. Just like you don't like people make exaggerated points about a small town... you are making some crazy exaggerations about city life.

I've never lived in a place where I was worried about drive-bys. I have been in just as much danger of rape/molestation in a small town vs a more urban area. I am 30 years old and have never taken a single drug, nor had any pushed on me... I actually find there is more drama in small towns than in big cities. My parents have had the cops in their small town pick on them because of things that happened between them and a neighbor that had no police involvement.

People like what they like. I'm glad you're happy where you're living, but my preference for living isn't any worse, necessarily. There are some bad cities, or bad neighborhoods in cities, but it isn't the whole place that's terrible.

First and foremost not CRAZY and definatly not exaggerating............. I'm sorry that your parent's have had problem's. Also, my response was to the jerk talking about the farmer's, etc....... I live on a 400 acre farm that my wonderful Hubby grew up on............ I don't and NEVER would do drugs or feel comfortable being around anyone that did........ My choice..........And the coment's he made as far as ''pig's and horse's'' , my grandchildren have different pet's, that are not in prison. [dog kennel or lot] out here there's no ordinances telling us what we CAN or CAN NOT have.............And no toll boothes...........Again, he's not missed..................

What city do you live in? Obviously someone needed to get out of the ghetto. And I was talking more of suburb areas like if you know buffalo, the tonawanda, Amherst, williamsville, Clarence, those areas. Nice areas full of middle class people who are not Hispanic and pushing kilos of coke out everyday like the cities you are talking about. I am not a fan of huge cities they all have there problems but when you actually do some research an move to a good area instead of shacking up in some Duplex on the corner of 1st and pothead alley, the city is by far more convenient and a better social point of view place to grow up.

Youre all wrong. The correct answer is suburbs
I have a yard, good schools, trees in my neighborhood, areas for my daughter to play in, yard, playgrounds etc. There are plenty of woods and mountains to go hiking and running and hunting and fishing and wheeling. Yet, I can go 10 minutes and go to the supermarket for food, clothes, hardware, electronics, restaurants, and a little further for professional sports, museums, airports, and theater

Pros of both city and country living, cons of neither.

As a feller who grew up in what became the suburbs (and has lived in the big city and tiny town) I promise you drugs are easier to get there than in the big city OR country. Your children will likely become bored at about 15, and someones older sibling gave your kids friend something, and bam. I dont mean to personalize it or say it has anything to do with parenting, or that it will be your kids. Just the way it is. Your particular kids may rise above it, and I hope so. Even if they do, they will have several friends that struggle with dependency of controlled substances, pills, or alcohol before their 18th birthday.

Many "drug dealers" in the city are simply good capitalists; that is the best way they can make money. 2k in a day hanging out with friends or McDonalds night shift for 8.25/hr, which would you take? And much of that 2k is suburban $$$.

It (suburb life) does offer the least crime with the most convinience and nature intermingled, appealing to some 50% of the United States populace. You are right about that, for sure. Great opportunities to do all kinds of stuff, spend a day in the country and catch a ball game that night.

I still prefer the "country" (mtns actually), but for the solitude I can achieve here. Not because the city is big and bad - I have seen that wolfs teeth, he aint THAT scary, lol.

Well to each their own…personally I’ll stick to the small towns. You city people have your points, and I’m glad you like city life, other wise my small town would get crowded. Having grown up in a suburb of Detroit(which rocks), lived in Alaska for a while and for the past 19 years in northern Michigan, I wouldn’t want to return to city life, the combat driving….the rat race, just not for me.

I love living in a small town. Got everything I need in that small town. There's always something to do out here. If you can fish there's always something to do. Not to mention I like to drive around and explore in my Jeep.

When I go to downtown Jax, it seems like NYC to me. My wife works downtown and really puts the mileage on her vehicle as a result.
On the other hand, when some of my Jax friends come to my house, they say it's the sticks.
To me, it's the suburbs with woods here and there.
I live in Jacksonville (Stuck here due to long time job) Murder Capital of Florida,Things I like about the Big City Everything is near by lots of stores etc & Great Saltwater Fishing,Things I don't like Crime,Traffic,I would be much happier in a small town in Southern Wv. or Western N.C. (Maybe after I retire?) Green Cove would not be too bad kinda Country but away from the city,We are lucky to have over a acre lot with only woods behind the house so I guess that is a +

I like the small town life, living on 40 acres and the closest town being 15 minutes away and only a population of 2500 at that.

johnnymotto, I assume you moved to San Juan or Ponce? You left out the worst part about city life. Traffic jams!
