Bright Lights, Small City

A Current Pew Poll has revealed that 47% of Americans are not very satisfied with their cities (especially big cities) of residence and would prefer living elsewhere. City dwellers are more likely to dream of living somewhere else, and men in rural areas are far happier living there than women. Generally speaking, men would rather live in Las Vegas and young people like the attraction of L.A. and New York.

Those are just some of the findings from a Pew Research Center survey released today in which Americans were asked where they would most like to live. Whether they favor cities, suburbs or the countryside, almost half wish they could pick up and leave in order to live elsewhere, the report found.

Me? I prefer the small-town living, about 75 minutes from Atlanta, Ga. and 25 minutes from Chattanooga, Tn., the best of the small, medium and large environments. (Lower cost of living and less taxes in a small town while being relatively close to metropolises.)


Percentage of Americans who say they want to live in this city or metropolitan area:
