Nicole, I’ve lived in a big city, small city, and now a rural area, 2 miles outside a village. I’d chose a rural area any day. Big city means convenience, however more noise, pollution and crime. Small city means everybody knows everything, every move you make, however it’s more like a large family.
Everything is within walking distance. Rural means quiet, peace, however more gas money to get to just the store or gas station. I love the rural farm area that we live in.
