I live in a rural town called London in Kentucky. As of census 2000 the pop. is 5,692, our largest business is Walmart, and the biggest tourist trap is the annual World Chicken festival which brings in an estimated 250,000 ppl a year, so i'm convenced that's the only reason it exists =p.

Urban, though not massive - about 400,000 people in the greater area. I wouldn't want any bigger. I also wouldn't want much smaller.

I live in an urban area. It's not huge, though. There are 100,000 people in my city (and roughly 200,000 people in the metropolitan area). It's a good size.

My town is about 45,000 people, I live on the outskirts so it's pretty much the suburbs. I would still prefer to live in the rural area, nature > buildings.

I like suburban. I live there, but it's kind of like rural/sub. I also like rural and urban places. All just different things to look at. Natural scenery is always the best though, so my vote is to rural.

Urban. Absolute quietness creeps me out, and I feel much more comfortable hearing a car occasionally. I also think Urban environment offers more choices for me when I need goods or services, not to mention more people.

Do some people not like the quiet rural places? You prefer being in heavy populated and loud cities always noisy or something? I would go mad if I had to listen to that.

To each their own I suppose. Maybe it's the same reason I tend to always stay in Trade chat back in WoW, and maybe that's what drove me mad. We shall never know.

Suburban. I live in Federal Way, Washington, which is 20 miles south of Seattle, and 15 miles north of Tacoma and is the third largest city in the state. But I pretty much consider myself living in Seattle since that's the nearest city everyone has heard of.

Well, I lived in both spectrums. I've lived in Tokyo, and now I live in a small town (25k population). The bigger city was nice because there are just so many places you can visit. However, sometime it's just too busy. The small town has nothing - just a wal-mart. I prefer living in a suburb with ~200k people or so. Some city life, but able to escape.

I live in an urban area. I live in a suburb of Minneapolis. Burnsville (the suburb I live in) has some 60,000 people. The whole Twin Cities metro area has over three million people, which is more than 60% of Minnesota's total population (5.3 million).:o

There's positives and negatives about both. In urban area, you get all the noise and hubub of the big city, yet when you need something, it's probably right there. And when you go out into the country, yeah, you get the peace and quiet, but it's also a little lonely. Where I live is kind of a mix. It's big but not big like New York City or anywhere.

Well I used to live in Jersey outside of NYC. I thought that was suburban, but moving to Raleigh has made me realize how urbanized that state is. I love urban style living -- things are walking distance, great public transportation, tons of awesome events (sports, concerts, festivals, etc.), and a lot of diverse people.

If I had the choice, I'd live in NYC, but money has made the choice for me. The boondocks it is -- I've got a pistol permit and I'm sort of dating a girl that leaves early on Sunday for Church. All I need is to break off contact with my black friends and vote Republican in the next election. Yee-haw!

Currently in a suburb.

I wish to have a primary residence in the countryside but also a tiny apartment in the city whenever I need to be there.

Urban, Metroplex has close to 7 million people, but it's Dallas, so it's much, much, much more spread out than almost any other city it's size and you don't have to drive for too long before it goes very rural if that's your cup of tea.

Well, I live in Phoenix, Arizona, also known as Phoenix metropolitan area. The city names are now more like districts because they're all touching each other, making it a metropolitan. So I actually live in Peoria. The population phoenix alone in 2008 is 1,567,924 (5th in county for 1 city), The population of my little town of Peoria, is 146,743, And the total population of the Phoenix metropolitan area in 2008, 4,281,899 (12th in america for metropolitan areas) So I guess that makes me urban

I started in a variety of small towns and farms and lived in the country in the USA and Canda until I was out of high school.

then I hit the cities. Ames....not really a big place but still a city.

Sacramento. Oakland. San Antonio. Boise. Hamilton. Toronto. San Francisco Manila. Seoul. Kuwait City. etc....

While I still visit my relatives in the midwest I am definately a city boy now and will live near a metro for the rest of my days.
