3 thoughts on “Urban, Suburban, Or Rural?”

  1. I grew up in semirural and suburban areas.
    I currently live in the “rural buffer zone” on the edge of my city. Being between two cities I would define it as semirural.
    I love where I live. There is pasture land across the street and most of my neighbors have large lots (I’m on 3 acres). If we want we can keep farm animals and I have several neighbors who have horses, cows, pigs, goats and llamas. Many of us also keep poultry.
    I can be in the downtown core of the city in less than 15 minutes yet it feels like I am in the country.
    I think I have the best of both worlds. Living in the country yet a quick trip to all the amenities that the city has to offer.

    1. I lived in a similar region for 3 years – after having lived in primarily rural communities most of my life. I enjoyed being so close to the city but still watching wildlife walk through the yard, etc. I could enjoy the quiet of the “country,” and still see the city (7 miles away) when I drove down the hill a few blocks from where I lived.

  2. I’ve lived in the ‘burbs of capital cities, midsized towns, small towns and the center of a European city. The suburbs work for me. 15 minutes in the car and I can enjoy everything downtown as to offer… but home has a little green space to grow things and plenty of running space for the canine companion.
