I was driving around in my mother's south metro Atlanta area for two years of high school, mine as well the other day, and I and my passenger were keeping a sharp eye out for a place to eat. Is it just a money thing? I always thought I would because I was raised in suburbs and wanted to get into the busy and lively life of a city. I live in a Toronto suburb called Mississauga, and I also wrote an article about its sprawl. Even just lovely to admire the architecture. You might also want to check out vrbo.

Why do the suburbs suck so much?
Food, parks, people…whats not to love? I kept my house there in Berkeley , and plan to return to live there in a few years when I retire. I love every second of it. Millions of other Democrats voted only in down-ballot races. The flip to that is you definitely make more money here and the career field is alot more open then NYC. Ever since I moved to Texas in and especially since I moved to Houston in , this happens a lot, nearly everywhere I travel.
6 big reasons won’t totally suck — in Detroit, at least – 8-Wood Blog
Some people relish in that freedom, but the general attitude is hardly conducive to striking up a neighborly conversation. I should admit my bias though, because I've lived in Karachi and New York, both of which are very urban, though I have a hard time deciding which is more. I like having a lawn and garage. Thirdly, flesh-eating parasites, deafening monster trucks, wildly irresponsible drivers and unbearable weather notwithstanding, there is absolutely no culture, sophistication or refinement to be had anywhere in or around Houston. I haven't recorded how many phone calls I've made to ask about a listed property, only to find it's "under contract", or "sorry mate, forgot to take that down — it's sold. The Watertown is in an urban university setting but walking distance to dozens of restaurants, a few multiplex movie theaters, some great bookstores, etc This actually seems the ideal area - close enough that I could get there in fifteen minutes, and get a cheap taxi if it's for a night out.
Some locals actually think Houston is a great place to live. We will not share your email with anyone for any reason. I had to live in the burbs of Oakville for years, worst environment I've lived in. Despite massive influxes of wealth in the 60s, 80s, and recently during the fracking boom, the city has only marginally improved its culture, urbanization, and amenities. I have to agree with the previous comment describing suburbia as a cemetery. The explanation is partly economic people feel underemployed since the recession , but the farm economy is actually quite healthy.
