City life means different things to different people. In the city, you can pretty much get anything you want at any time of the day. There is public transportation, theres a wider availablity of jobs available and theres a better variety of living accomodations.
It's easier to meet new people and make new friends. If you have specific interests there's almost always a course or class available for you to take. Not to mention, living closer to polite and hospitals can make city living feel safer.
