In my case it's the ease with which a car-less person such as myself can travel to other places.

THAT would be difficult where i live ... as there is very little public transportation and the closest TOWN is about 4 miles away. CITIES are even further away. ;)

but it is quiet ... relatively crime free ... a bus trip close to not too big schools ... and places of worship that are literally focused on a place "out of this world" - but WORKING in "the present," for the over all good of the community. :mrgreen:

love,

I live in Chicago, which I love. I haven't owned a car in more than 20 years and don't need one. I live directly across the street from the subway which takes me downtown very quickly.

There's also a lively theater scene here and property isn't outrageous like it is in NYC ;-).

I don't like being overcrowded, and the little city of Barrie, in the Province of Ontario (same
meaning as State) doesn't have the large population of people like Toronto, New York
Boston, Chicago etc. Toronto has grown over the years, but still isn't one of the
biggest in terms of population, in comparison to most other big North American
cities.

Still, I was born and grew up mostly in the Toronto area. Was getting a little
too crowded for my liking, so I decided to move about an hour and a half north
of TO, to Barrie. Nice, clean. Some people are friendly.

What I like about where I live is accessible culture. Theatre is very cheap and often you don't need to buy tickets in advance. You can just dress up, go to the national theatre and buy a ticket for the 7 p.m. show. And it's always good. And then there are the little theatres. You have all sorts of things there. I saw the best version of Sweeney Todd in the tiniest theatre you could imagine. And then, there is the opera house. Very high quality performances each time.
Museums, galleries, exhibitions... For some reasons, cinemas here are rather expensive and most of the time they're empty. They only ever contain people on the first day of a big film. When I go to the cinema I always go the second day and then I'm the only person there. (Sometimes there is also an odd couple in the back row but the effect is the same)
The fact that everything can be accessed via public transport is also a big plus of my town. The price of a single ticket is crazy high but the 1 year card is quite cheap and it also serves as a permanent free pass to the horse races. I never understood the link between public transport and horse racing but it must be one of the things that mortal people shouldn't worry about.
