So DH & I are thinking about putting our city townhouse on the market next spring/summer and moving to a larger house with a yard, etc. We'd like this next house to be our "forever" home where we raise our kids and live for the next 30 + years.

We found a picturesque town just over the boarder in NH thats very rural, lots of pastures and farms and woods, where we can afford a very nice 4 bedroom home. The school system there is one of the best in the country, and this town is next to a city of 90,000 so every big box store/ restaurant you can think of is right next door. Going north into NH puts us closer to my parents and the same distance we are now from his parents, but means closer to an hour long commute for DH which is 20-45 minutes now.

My question is for you ladies that live in the country now. How do you like rural living? Is it isolating or do you have more of a community?

Anyone else have any insight on city vs. suburban vs. rural living?
