  • Love:
    1) All the parks. Great for dog people like me. I love the parks here.
    2) The variety of food and restaurants here. I love trying new things and I love how most places here have accommodated my dietary restrictions (no peanuts, no milk).
    3) The relative safety of the city overall. There are bad neighbourhoods like any other city, but as long as you stay away from them you're good.

    1) That it's expensive to live here. Average price for a single family home or condos is about $1 million. In the surrounding suburbs houses average about $800 K. Average rent for a decent apartment is about $2,000 per month. I was lucky to be able to purchase this house at a really low price because of connections and help from my family. I won't be moving for a long time because I can't afford it. Canada in general is pretty expensive.
    2) Bare bones subway system. It's good if you live downtown, but it should really be extended out to the suburbs to ease the commutes. An LRT system would be nice.
    3) Too many hipsters here for my liking, lol. I don't hate that but the trend is annoying more than anything.

    I live in Toronto, Canada.

    • Why does everyone hate hipsters? It's a sign that your city is well developed?

    • Show All
    • Lol I'm not offended but by your opinion I'm just stating that you don't even know how privileged your are because some city will make you go through depression by the amount of deaths that happen each day, if hipsters are our only complaint then when doing alright.

      And I wasn't aware that you asked me a question?

    • @cchris989 I asked "How are hipsters a sign that a city is well developed?"

      I know where I stand when it comes to privilege. Don't assume that I don't know how privileged I am. People die from all kinds of things everyday here. It's sad but I don't waste my time crying about it. I don't know if you live in a city but if homicides, traffic fatalities, and whatnot really get to you, then it's probably better to live in the country where your closest neighbour is a mile away. Hipsters are merely an annoyance to me.

      This is a light hearted question, or at least it was supposed to be. I like living here but if other people don't, that's fine. That's what realtors and U-Haul trucks are for.

    3) I've lived here now for 6 almost 7 years.

  • The Bay Area, California. I love the wide variety of food, millions of things to do, and occasionally the white women. But I hate the diversity, overly strict gun laws, and lack of wilderness.

What Girls Said 24

  • I live in a small town with maybe 3000 people so it's hard to make a list but I will try.
    1. It's about 5 to 10 minutes biking from the beach and dunes and it lays right in between big tulip fields.
    2. Although it's very small, the center is kinda pretty and very historic with castle ruins from the middle ages and houses from the 16th century.
    3. It lays right in between bigger cities. The nearest city Alkmaar is pretty and historic as well and has a great shopping area and you are in Amsterdam with the train in half an hour.

    Down points,
    1. Although the city is not that far away, you still have to bike about 30 minutes to be there.
    2. The weather is total shit ofcourse.
    3. You'd expect from a small town that it would be cozy with friendly neighbors, not here. Your neighbors don't give a shit about you and you never see them.

  • Not much to say about my city. But my state (Virginia):

    -Beautiful scenery, especially in the Shenandoah Valley (where I live). Lots of beautiful mountains and overlooks, and it's especially gorgeous in the fall.

    -History and heritage. There's so much American history here, with Monticello, The Rotunda, Jamestowne.

    -Culture and education. UVA is a great school and there are a lot of famous prep schools here.

    There are a lot of people with very elite backgrounds and I've had the pleasure of knowing some. I appreciate a lot of their old fashioned sensibilities and sense of tradition.

    The bad:

    -When it gets rural, it can get really redneck and ghetto. There's a lot of uneducated, backward people. That's Appalachia, for you :/

    -Very slow moving. It's easy to get more. The people here have a lackadaisical approach to life. It's the Southern way xD

    -Drugs. So much meth. It's a serious problem for a lot of small towns, here.

  • Love:
    -The are so. many. restaurants. So many. People around here really love their food so we have all kinds of small business and you never have to go a long distance without plenty of options for food.
    -Low crime.
    -All of the small businesses. Our downtown area is super lively and all of the shops are so cute.
    -We have a lot of gorgeous nature.
    -Great education generally and the people around are hard workers.

    -The weather. Our winters last forever and I hate the cold.
    -How hilly it is.
    -While otherwise our shopping is good our mall sucks. The nearest nice mall is about an hours drive.

  • i live in florida, in a city that i'd rather not mention.

    things i like:
    1) there is a business here that will deliver food to your house from publix, if you pay the yearly membership fee. it's very convenient because i don't have a car.
    2) i really liked my school. great campus and teachers.
    3) lots of downtown festivities and interesting sites to see.

    things i dislike:
    1) almost everyone here is on drugs, or is a drug dealer. it's very depressing.
    2) too many people die from heroin. so much that we are becoming known as the heroin capital of florida.
    3) our bus system sucks. they only stay open till 7:30 at night, while other places stay open till at least 12 in the morning.

  • Finland, Espoo

    Good things
    - Generally a safe place to live, the feeling of security. I can walk alone at night without fear and people return your lost wallet with all the money or try to find the owner.
    - Diversity: Close to the sea and many beaches, a lot of nature and countryside landscape, but also old mansions and modern urban concentrations.
    - You can either find a place to be all alone or surrounded by people.

    Bad things
    -Not a proper city centre, but multiple smaller ones with only the most necessary services and always the same popular chain stores. Want something a little different? Go to the capital.
    - Due to increased amount of immigrants there's not enough houses and it's extremely hard to get one.
    - The services are scattered around a big city and the public transportation sucks. And you literally have to take a bus to everywhere. :(
