Top Ten Reasons I like Cities

  1. Choices - the variety or restaurants, shopping, entertainment 
  2. Transportation - Cities can be the worst if you insist on driving, but are at their best when you use public transit 
  3. Anonymity - If 100 people know you and you live in a city of 1,000 people, odds are 1 in 10 the people you bump into will know you, know the same  100 people in a city of 1,000,000 people and only 1 in 10,000 people will know you.
  4. Big airports, more flight options, more airlines, more destinations without changing planes  
  5. The hum of the city - cities make a sound 
  6. Diversity - big cities draw people from all kinds of backgrounds and life experiences 
  7. Eating out - forget chain restaurants - how about Turkish tapas tonight?  I know just the place! 
  8. Tall buildings, I can't leap them in a single bound, but I like them. 
  9. The smell - this may go back to my first grade in Phoenix experience, but I like the smell of cities, especially on a cool damp morning.  
  10. Entertainment options, museums, music, theater, there is a lot more to enjoy in LA then there is in North Branch.  


  1. city vacation options are limitless!

  2. Oh I just so completely and utterly agree!!!

  3. The theatre is what gets me; and the choice of entertainment - or none at all.
