I've lived in large cities and I've lived in small towns and I will take the small town over the city 1000 to 1.
Almost no crime and what there is, are small offenses. Quiet
. By 9:00, I can hear a dog bark across town. There's no need to drive long
distances, everything you need is right here. Grocery stores, gas stations, hardware stores etc...all in a town of 3,000. I have a large yard, with a
garden, fruit trees, strawberries, raspberries... I like to grow things, but you wouldn't have to go that route. Home prices are much lower than in a
city and you get more land included. Lower utility prices too.
Police, Ambulance and Fire services are fast.
I can have a cop at my house, even for a non emergency, in less than 5 minutes. The cops and fire
fighters are invested in the community. They live here and know pretty much everybody.
Go for the country. You'll thank me later.
ETA - I have an internet hub 6 blocks from me, so my internet is fast and I only have a "middle of the road" plan. 25mb per second for a bit under
$50. I can watch a movie on TV, a different show on my tablet and another
show on my phone, all while my son is playing games online with
friends, with no lag.
