For some people, the suburbs are simply too quiet and too boring. They are far away from all the action in the city: the theaters, bars, clubs, restaurants, galleries and shops. Each outing to one of these places is an excursion, taking time and effort. The suburbs also often require a long commute to work. The cost of transportation adds up, and the time spent traveling each day could be put to better use.
In some suburban areas, there are few public transportation options, so if you hate driving, cannot afford a car or don't relish the opportunity of car pooling, then you will find it hard to get to work each day. The choice of where to live is, of course, entirely up to you. Consider these pros and cons, and decide what your priorities are in determining which location you want to call "home."
