What Are the Top Benefits of Living in a Big City or a Small Town?

What’s better, living in a big city or a small town?  Someone took a stab at ranking the TOP benefits of each option.  See if you agree.

Let’s start with the five best things about big city living . . .

1.  More job opportunities.

2.  Better public transportation.

3.  Better access to the arts, and things like museums.

4.  More stores.

5.  More housing options.  A few more that made the list are more restaurants and bars . . . more diversity . . . and better internet speeds.

Now here are the top five benefits of living in a small town . . .

1.  Cleaner air and less pollution.

2.  Homes are a lot cheaper.

3.  More peace and quiet in general.

4.  The pace of life is a lot slower.

5.  Less crime.  A few others from the small town list are more close-knit communities . . . better access to nature . . . and parking is never a problem.

(I’d also add that LESS TRAFFIC is a huge plus for small towns.)
