It’s easy to get lost in big city life. Skyscrapers, narrow streets, and thousands of people caught up in the hustle and bustle of metropolitan areas isn’t necessarily a bad thing—it just may not be right for you.
Whether you wish to raise your family in a friendly, close knit community, or you as an individual or couple prefers the quieter side of life, there are numerous benefits of living in a small community.
Let’s discuss a few of the benefits of small town livin’ and get to packing!
- Sense of Community
In small communities, there is a definite sense of camaraderie that is often absent from big city dwellings. Many communities include town centers complete with local businesses and shops, from restaurants to fitness facilities and even pools. There are Herriman homes for sale that would bring you right into the heart of small community living.
Wouldn’t it be great to know your neighbor? Beat city traffic and parking woes? There are communal gathering spots in these types of developments that can include benches, fountains, and small scenic parks. Some town centers even include barbecue spots, complete with fire pits and seating!
- Boost your Social Life
Small communities make for great social environments. From the parks and paths, town centers, shops and restaurants, and more, there is always something to do or someone to meet.
A stronger sense of security is present in small communities, so you and your family will most likely feel safer to go for walks and explore your area.
- Enjoy the Quiet
Living away from big cities means living away from the relentless noise that comes along with them. You won’t hear traffic, congestion, and honking horns, and (hopefully) ambulance, fire, and police sirens will only be heard few and far between.
In smaller communities where all the neighbors know each other, people are more likely to respect and maintain noise levels. You won’t be woken by raucous house parties, and you won’t have to worry about pedestrians in the streets at all hours of the night.
- Learn to Love Big City Life – From Afar
Living in a small community will definitely benefit you and/or your family, if that’s what you’re looking for, but it will also allow you to learn to love big city life.
Being removed from the daily grind will let you appreciate it when you visit. Most small communities are within driving distance of major metropolitan areas, so you won’t be completely isolated. If you ever need a change of pace, you can go into the big city closest to you for a change in scenery and entertainment.
Regardless of what state you live in (or even country), small community living is within your reach! Do a little research, visit a couple of town centers, and talk to your friends and co-workers. Someone somewhere has come from a small community and can let you know first-hand how great it is to live in one.
