There are many pros of living in an urban/city area. Firstly, you will have easy access to public transportation, making it easier to navigate your way to different locations. In addition, there are more activities to do, and more entertainment options for those that opt to live in the city. There is easy access to restaurants, bowling arenas, movie theatres and practically any hobby of yours that you like. You will always be able to find something to do. In addition to this, you will be able to meet a lot more people by living in the city. Whether you live in a suburban area or in the heart of a city, you will have people around you that you can meet and give you new perspectives of life from the same or different cultural backgrounds. There are also a lot more job opportunities in the city – you will find an easier time to find a job that fits your interest and field.


Apart from the pros, there are also cons to urban living. The disadvantages include potential loud noises – especially for those living in the heart of the city. In addition, there may be smaller spaces, in comparison to rural living. Although there may not be as much land or smaller apartment buildings, many prefer living in apartments due to the small size of their family – especially if the apartment is nearby their place of work. Lastly, there may be a more competitive job market considering that there are a lot more people living in the area – this could mean that you will need to step up your resume, but who doesn’t love a challenge!? If you dislike a fast-paced lifestyle, urban living may not be for you.



Pros: There are many advantages to living in rural areas – and many prefer this over urban living. Some find this to be a better option because it is more affordable than living in the city. Housing tends to be cheaper on the rural side many find that this is the best option considering their financial situation. In addition, for all those nature lovers out there, many find that living in a rural area is the best place to live considering the large green spaces. Many also find that they enjoy a slower pace – something that they cannot find living in the city.

Cons: Comparing to urban-living, there are fewer job opportunities. Moreover, living in the country could mean that you will be farther from entertainment options or other activities that you might enjoy. There could also be more maintenance involvement when it comes to maintain large areas of land. Lastly, there is not easy access to public transportation services – therefore, without your own vehicle it may be difficult to get around.
