Rural area. I can't really explain why I prefer rural areas without sounding like a major misanthrope.

Currently live in a small town. Hope to move to a big city one day though. Different strokes for different folks. Some people have to live in one or the other due to their career choice regardless of where they would personally rather live.

I'd rather live in a big city personally, but I'm a bit surprised you didn't provide more options.

Small town and rural area, after all, are almost the same thing. And most people in the U.S. either live in mid-sized/smaller cities or suburbs.

Either a medium-sized city or the outer suburbs of a larger city. You have pretty much everything you need just a few minutes away, but avoid much of the hustle-and-bustle associated with big city living.

A mid-sized city such as I live today. 500,000-1,000,000. Especially if you're close to a large city within an hour's drive.

Rural area or very small town, where I am now used to be a nice small town but there are too many new subdivisions and strip malls, increased traffic, noise, litter and crime.
