The city never sleeps

Agnes Sorensen, Staff Writer

I grew up in Denmark, where I have lived in both a small town and a city. Because of my experiences I can soundly say I have a preference for the city. I love the city and all that happens. 

A city does not have to be the size of New York or Chicago to contain plenty of activities. Cities normally have multiple shopping areas, great restaurants, museums, parks, music venues, great schools, and sports stadiums. Most cities have public transportation opportunities, which makes it easy to get around and have more fun. 

There is always something going on in a city, which makes it hard to get bored compared to a smaller town where people usually have a desire to go on a vacation because everything is very routine-based and boring. 

In a city there is always something going on.

Everybody knows each other in a small town, so life stays easy and bland for a long time. You need to go out and experience new things. In a city there is always something going on. 

I really like the city, because you do not need a car to get around. Public transportation is fun because it is easy, fast, and efficient. Even though you might live a more busy life, you can always do something with your friends or family. 

A town can also be pretty cool because you know more people and everyone is kind of connected like here in the Starr’s Mill area. I think it is nice when people know each other, even though it is mostly just small talk.

However, cities give more space for different cultures, which I think is essential for people to experience. It is usually the same people, who live in a smaller town for a long time, which means that they really have to get around to experience new things. 

A city does not necessarily have to have skyscrapers and be as huge as New York City, but I love all the things there are to do compared to a town where things usually stay the same for a long time. A city just has a lot of life, which makes life more fun.
