I am an Urban Dweller - and I liked it so much I came back here twice!
I live on the near west side of Chicago.
Yes is is ridiculously expensive, the traffic is constantly gridlocked,
But it is also very scenic, very beautiful, and there is no shortage of things to do and new people to meet.
And beach beach beach! Some of the greatest beaches in the world are here - shhhh...... it's a secret
Of course we are quite a bit warmer than MN here; weather not so extreme.
Still, Urban Living is sim everywhere and I think if you give it a chance you will get to like it!
I LOVE CHI TOWN BABY! GREATEST CITY IN THE WORLD!!!
I love Urban Living too - love to be able to get up and go, do whatever you want, access to all kinds of things, people, cultures - LOVE IT!
You can carve out your own "niche" too, in urban settings. Here you can be everything from a hippie, to a yuppie, to a flamboyant entertainer of
any genre, Joe Six Pack, Fashion Designer, *anything* YOU want! It's great!
The Twin Cities have MANY great things to offer - TAKE ADVANTAGE! Get out and do things! The entire Great Lakes area also is one of *the most* scenic
spots on earth too - huge tourism - you live here? TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT!
I WELCOME YOU, NEW RESIDENT AND FAMILY!
You will come to LOVE it here! US Great Lakes Region = GREATEST PLACE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH!!!
You've got "city" and "country", everything from fishing to opera, MAGNIFICENT scenery! "The Third Coast", Outdoor stuff the such that Mecca is
made of, Fine Dining to Punk Rock, NASCAR to Antique Maserattis, this is *THE PLACE*.
Whole area is just MONDO AWESOME! Something for everyone and most people get along and are friendly and open minded too.
You're gonna LOVE IT!
