Human being always tries to live in a place where he or she feels comfort. Some people have predilection for a small town to live, while others prefer to live in a big city. In my opinion, however, I love to live in a small to town because there is no hustle and bustle of the city, no air pollution. On the other hand, community sense, fresh air, and the simple lifestyle is the linchpin of living in a small town that is rare in city life. That is why my preference always goes to small town.
In a small town, there is no hustle and bustle like city. There is no traffic congestion, no long queue of vehicles on the roads. In contrast, a few cars straggle down the street and a considerable number of people walk are the very common scenario in a small town. More importantly, the streets are much safer than city and needless to say that car accidents are few and far between.
Another charming advantage of living in small town is the fresh air. There is little or no smog, plenty of parks to enjoy with children, lots of green surroundings, and, peace and tranquility. Kids skipping through the field of blossoms breathing country air are unimaginable in the city. In the city, children are being raised in a toxic environment. Smog and fumes are the linchpin of city life. So, who would deny the sweet country air!
Again, one reason is enough to live in a small town is the sense of community. Everyone reaches out to help others in need. Everyone cares for each other. They take care each other, particularly in times of need. They all live like a family. For example, last month I lost my dog and I was amazed at how everybody came to help me searching the dog.
In pithy, life is simpler in a small town. You can feel your roots and amazing pleasure is taken in things like woodwork, sewing, baking, and walking the dog. You can live the life in the small town without the hassle of mechanical society. However, choosing a place to live comes down individual preference. In the case, I always love the feel of aesthetics to the small town.
