The Urban Lifestyle vs. Suburban Lifestyle

The Urban Lifestyle
  1. Cafes
  2. Live Music
  3. Public Transportation
  4. Apartments (minimal space)
  5. Ethnic Restaurants
  6. Cultural Diversity
  7. Plays
  8. Museums
  9. Connectivity
  10. Community
  11. Zipcars
  12. Diverse Shopping
  13. Trends
  14. High rises
  15. Briefcases
  16. Suits
  17. Parks
  18. Delivery
  19. Parking problems
  20. No place to escape (weekends drive to the country)
  21. Finally, the desire to own something, land particularly (so move to the suburbs)

The Suburban Lifestyle

  1. Large Homes
  2. Lawns
  3. Bar-b-ques
  4. Neighborhoods
  5. Community Centers
  6. Shopping Malls
  7. Driving
  8. Lots of Cars
  9. Neighborhood parks
  10. Strip Malls
  11. Fast Food
  12. Mega-Bookstores
  13. Starbucks 
  14. Grocery Warehouses
  15. Mowing lawns
  16. Pool Service
  17. Housekeepers
  18. Nanny’s
  19. Car Washes
  20. Freeways
  21. Finally, the desire to experience something new (move to the city)

This is a fairly inaccurate and opinionated list, yet provided clarity to the reasons I have lived on both sides of the equation.   Solution, cabin in upstate to escape too (summers and weekends) and apartment in the city (weekly).

Our condo is for sale in another post, it is the best of both worlds in a way, City North is across the street and in the backyard is a 5 star golf course connected to a master planned community.   Yet, we want to move out of Arizona for a bit, to explore the true Urban lifestyle, yet will build a Loblolly somewhere north on a lake or ocean.   That’s the plan.
