Country Versus City Living There are many advantages and disadvantages to living in the city and the country. There are some major differences between the two and before some one considers either they really need to think about what style of living do they want. Some people want to live in town because there is less traveling that has to be done. There are many more public events that take place in the city.

In big cities a lot of events are inside like museums, theatre's, shopping, and recreation centers. People could not do events in the city that take place in the country where there is more room such as hunting and fishing. In the country there are still events that take place, but some of them are different because of the people and how much open space there is. In the country there are county and state fairs, big parks, camp grounds, and a lot of other outdoor activities that people…
