Not all cities are like that. Also in many cities, as you must know, there are very quiet areas. I love living where I live in Vancouver. Smack dab in the centre, downtown. It's not chaotic, I'm surround by everything I need, all within walking distance. I'm heading up to a local pub this afternoon to meet friends...no worries about driving home after a few...or a lot. LOL

Tomorrow I'm walking to the beach for a lay about.

Also only visitors to a city pay outrageous parking fees. The people that live here either have their own parking, as I do, or don't need a car.

I know you've been to parts of Canada..but have you been to Vancouver yet Vincie??

Yeah i know, big cities - i love and hate at the same time... it was a blast to visit but when i returned home i felt so relaxed and everything was more nice and calm. but i lived most of my life in a suburban community in the midwest so you are probably more comfortable in a big city.

Its nice walking around more and using public transportation but it got annoying after one day lol, aggressive drivers trying to yield to pedestrians while turning, groups of people standing in the middle of the sidewalk to have a conversation, tourist riding bicycles on the sidewalk, etc...

I like suburbs for living and cities for visiting.
oh yeah, my precious car I can't live without! Every place on earth should cater to my need of traveling smoothly in my previous car! The streets are too narrow! Too many annoying pedestrians who think they are the king of the city! Parking too expensive and not widely available! Houses without double garages! The devil!

Noting wrong with your sentiment whatsoever... I think there is room for both in this world even though some would insist otherwise.

I lived smack dab in DT Toronto and paid 60 bucks a month for underground parking at my building so if you live and drive DT its not necessarily prohibitively expensive.. If you visit a city and don't want to park DT you could always go to a more suburban transit station and pay for parking and just take the Subway.. I did this when I visited Boston and you can do that in Toronto.. It costs a fraction of what you'd pay DT including your subway ticket.

I've seen dudette used for women a few times, and dude for men. But I guess if someone doesn't know the other person's gender and doesn't get a hint from their user name then there's no harm done in calling the other person 'dude'. It's sort of multi-purpose. Shrugs. I know it doesn't bother me when someone online refers to me as a dude.

LOL... I'm female. "Dude" doesn't bother me... I'm far too grounded in real life to be bothered by anything on a forum. It's all good.

I had no problem at all with public transit when I lived where it was practical to use it. I've lived in Kitsilano (literally the BEST downtown living I've ever enjoyed has been Vancouver, and the one bus I had to take to get there stopped right at the door of my apartment every 15 minutes) and right downtown Toronto at Church & Queen. I've also lived on the Danforth. I've done my fair share of time in cities, and I am entitled to my opinion.

Not sure who the doofus was that said I was comparing Toronto to Kelowna. LOL I was merely pointing out, to the individual that said my points were out of place here being the Toronto forum, that it was in fact the CANADA forum. Canada has its share of less dense cities, too, so there's no reason why someone who doesn't prefer the urbanity of Toronto (as ONE city within Canada as a country) shouldn't be welcome.

I'd love to go some big city and try going completely car free for a week just to see what its like. it was fun when i was in Chicago, very fast and convenient but at the end of the day its a fact that roads take you more places, roads take you virtually everywhere. unless if you want to go on some crazy vacation in the Arctic.

I must of lied to you at one point or you are thinking of someone else, i have never been to Canada but i am very interested in the country (which is why you see me here all the time.) but i am mostly interested in all of Quebec and the northern isolated parts of the rest of the provinces, the rest of Canada isn't of high interest to me but its still all a great place and i hear Vancouver is a pretty nice and urban city.

Vince i'll hazard a guess that you arent getting any younger,if you want to see Canadas remote north jump in your car when you have the time and drive straight north on Manitoba's rt6, you'll get more wilderness than you'll know what to do with=

Or if Quebec take a 1400 kilometer journey from Montreal to the end of the road in Chisasibi.
