I have a infatuation, for some reason, with living in the city. I grew up in the southwest suburbs of Houston which have by now been bypassed by suburbs that extend even further outside of the city. I love having access to shopping, restaurants and entertainment. You typically have to go inside the loop that circles town to really do the fun stuff that Myron and I like to do. We are social folks and like to be in those streets. I hate having to commute into work. My plantation will be moving downtown Houston by Memorial and I plan to take the Park N Ride into the city. If we lived in the city, I might even be able to use the light rail. I’ve only lived in apartments, condos and now my townhouse since moving out my childhood home. I don’t miss having to do yard work. And we don’t have kids, but I think you can raise a kid just fine in a townhouse.
My husband, on the other hand, is not sold on city living at all. He wants a yard, a dog, a patio for his BBQ pit and a man room. He thinks kids need to play on freshly cut grass in their own backyard. He wants to mow his very own lawn and hang up Christmas lights. He says you get more house for your money in the ‘burbs. He wants to have a free standing house of his own. And I want that for him too. But maybe in a slightly different package. LOL!!!
So, my question to you is where would rather live? City or Suburbs?? Where do you live now? What were you reasons for picking where you live now?
