I live in a small town. (appx 75 people) I love living here. We have a grocery store, gas station, bar, grain elevator, and post office within 1 mile of where I live. If I want to go to a bigger city with malls, walmart, nice restaurants, I drive about an hr and I'm there. The cons are that everyone else knows your business or at least willing to make it up, lol. And not alot of job offers when it comes to such a small town. But I wouldn't trade it for the busy streets of the city. I love the quiet atmosphere. (I can go play pinchole with the older guys every morning around 9 a.m., I love that if I'm broke down anyone here would be willing to pitch in and help. I love walking down the street and knowing almost everyone I see. We all get together to play bingo on Saturdays and in the winter its pool and darts.) Life is good here.
