Which one would you rather live in and why?

As an Australian I think I'd definitely want to live in the city. Our towns and country properties can be very remote, few people live there and many places are just vast expanses of bushland. As much as I like nature I wouldn't want to live away from society or in a boring town where nothing happens and you know everyone. It's awesome that with 4.5 million people there could always be new friends to make, beautiful faces to see and never see again, just a maelstrom of humanity, it's quite humbling.

I love the public transport of cities, having to drive everywhere would just get so tedious. Convenience in terms of getting food, opportunities for entertainment, plus awesome WiFi :)

It's difficult to explain but I think living in cities lets you experience more of the world, at least our part of the world, society.

What's your preferred area to live?

I have lived in both country and city - many times I prefer the country, but also when I lived in the country I missed the city. It's a hard choice at times.

Don't know maybe one part of the year in the country and the other on the city. Voted for country since I don't get to travel much now a days, at the moment I do miss the Oregon countryside.

    A city. I like the big cities with bright lights and tons of people. I'd hate to be stuck alone in the country. That's why I like Jacksonville.

    I live in the city so yeah obviously answered city here. I don't even think I'd survive in a rural area after bad experiences with school camp in the past.

    I've never lived in the city where I'm from, but also in the city, crime is higher and you're more confined. I prefer the open space out where we are and there's hardly any crime. So I voted for country.

      I live in a city but would rather live in the country where there are less people to make noise that bother me.

      I'm a big city junkie. As much as I adore the lovely so-called countryside where I live in right now, I would much rather be in a city with lots of people.

        Cities definitively
        Not sure why, but it probably has something to do with how I grew up in Oslo, so whenever I'm there it just feels very right. It's a pretty unique atmosphere; streets filled with shops and people that pass by, having their own lives with ups and downs

        Where I live now is considered a city, but I find it a bit... small... more like a small town really.

        Definitely would prefer to live in a city. There's nothing wrong with the piece and quiet environment that you get in the country, which I would like once in a while, but the convenience of being able to walk around as a method of transportation is a plus. It can be scary living out in the country so far from civilization and neighbours are spread out .___.

          Country. There's no way I will ever live in a city.
          It's too grey for me, it's chaotic, polluted, and all you can see is buildings everywhere, no green.
          I live by a big lake, surrounded with mountains and green everywhere; the city is still only half an hour away.
          Sure, during the winter it gets very lonely, but so what? Silence and the sounds of nature can be appreciated a lot more than the never ending noise of cars and city life.
          I don't know if this applies to other places in the country too, but here during summer there's a lot of activity.
          Everywhere, towns get filled with tourists, and driving anywhere takes ages because of all the traffic.
          It's quite the opposite of what I described above about the winter here, so it's not like I can't get what life in the city can offer me, more like: I can, but with the not so trivial added bonus of healthier lungs and the sight of something pretty when I get up.

          This is a killer question for me because I'm a traveler at heart and can see beauty in both areas. The country is peaceful and its scenery gorgeous while a city is bustling and has so many places to go.. both are areas I can see myself settling down in if given the choice.

          But I'd probably go with a city because more work opportunities and all that jazz.

          I've never lived in a city as I have always been countryside but like the others, the city is where I want to be. It's so much more lively with numerous more things to do. It just seems better overall and wouldn't be as boring all of the time haha.

          I live in a city and as much I enjoy it, I wouldn't mind living in the country. It always seems more quiet in the country than the city and the scenery is a lot more beautiful than a bunch of buildings and houses. My aunt lives in the city and I enjoy the quiet and the solitude I get there. There is however a lot more to do in the city and sometimes the lights can be really pretty. But the night sky and stars are even prettier. :3

          I like suburbs more than noisy cities or remote countries.

            I understand the love some people feel for country life, but I myself highly prefer cities. Everything is right where you need it, it's so much more convenient. I've actually had a lot of people completely not comprehend my point of view; usually goes something like "How on earth can you prefer the city?! It's gross, and crowded, SO much traffic, so very noisy, everything's way too fast paced. You've obviously never lived in the country, where it's peaceful, quiet, and you can see the stars..."

            That's all good and well and I do love visiting the country every now and again, but I guess the high amount of convenience makes it all worth it for me. You can really immerse yourself in culture and people and all that stuff in the city. And I really love it <3

            Really comes down to the type of person you are I guess.

              Country for sure. I literally cannot stand to be up in the city. Too much noise and the roads seem almost impossible to drive on. It just feels depressing to me. I always dread trips up to St. Louis, but I have to if I want to watch a Blues game. It's just a lot more peaceful out in the country and I've always enjoyed outdoor activities and small gatherings. It's probably because I grew up out in the country, so that's the type of life I'm used too.

              After living in both, I can easily say I prefer City life. Transport is quicker, you're closer to facilities, there's more things to do and see.

                  The city. I'm used to live in anywhere as long as I'm in the cities.

                  Oh the city most definitely. I might consider the country if it weren't for the... country people.

                  Oh god, I don't wanna live in the country at all.

                  I love big cities, and the people, and the lights.

                  As it is, I live in a suburb. Hoping to change that one day. We've got Kansas city that's close by, buuut even that isn't as big as I'd like. It's a mini-city in comparison to some. xD

                    I'd like to live in the country but nearby a bigger city. Where we wouldn't get much traffic except when I had to go into town. Sadly, that's not the case where I live where it's an eternal traffic jam.

                      El countraaayyy!

                      It'd be so peaceful, and I could lie on my hammock with my dog reading books, I could ride ponies to wherever I'd need to go, have spare time, I could breathe without inhaling toxic car fumes, see stars for the first time in 10 years and there'd be snow! omg!

                      I'm sure it's not actually like that, but beats living in a stuffy city any day

                        I live in a city right now but I'd love to live in the country if even for a short while just to see what it's like. There's a woodsy area near my college campus and I go there whenever I have time because I just really love trees and it's always quiet and peaceful.
