I like both urban and rural. I can't stand most suburbs.
Ideally I like a place within a big city that still has lots of trees, hills and old homes very much like the part of San Francisco I live. There are only a handful of suburban communities I like such as; Marin County, Sierra Madre and Pasadena (near L.A.), Lake Minnetonka, MN
and north suburbs of Chicago.
Most suburbs today are souless track home developments, strip malls, chain stores and just total bordom. Suburbs are the worst of both worlds. It's still conjested, noisy, expensive yet you still have to drive everywhare, stores close early and there is no nightlife nor is there much peace and tranquility.
I love the rural countryside. I love to go camping and I also have friends that cabins up in the Sierra Nevada foothills and up in the isolated hippie communes in Humboldt County (northern California) and in rural British Columbia, Canada.
At this stage of my life, I like living in the city.
*I love the nightlife, I love to boogie, on the disco arrrrrrrrooooound oh yeah!
* Now who wants to take a guess at what classic tune that was?
