Spent my formative youth between a few Southeastern college towns (Charlottesville, Chapel Hill), really dug them. I wouldn't really call them rural, but they weren't overly cookie cutter suburban either. Moved to Portland, Oregon for undergraduate, and absolutely *loved* it -- I could easily bike everywhere, there was amazing beer, lots of really cool music, everyone was amazingly nice. Moved to NYC for graduate school and I'm not really a fan -- can't afford the rent, takes forever to get anywhere interesting like Williamsburg or Bed-Stuy or Crown Heights on public transit, people on average tend to be way grumpier than elsewhere, its hard to get good produce. I guess I'm a medium-sized city type? I think it is more complex than a simple rural/urban breakdown.
