I went to school for a while in the city where there were tons of people and always some event going on. However, I choose living in rural Maine hands down. There quality of the people here in unrivaled. There is always a friendly face. You can see the stars and night, and the air is fresh and clean. Who wants to walk down crowded city streets when you can hike up to the place that sees the first of the sunrise in the entire US each day.
We may not have sidewalks, but the cars are few and far between so there is no need for them. People are always mindful of those walking. As for automotive transportation, I wouldn't want an interstate right outside my door so I am okay with it.
Maine is on board with being eco-friendly. At leaf my area is. There are always returnable sections, there were at least 10 returnable cans in my school, and each classroom had recycle bins.
