City Parenting

Here are my Top 10 reasons why I love city parenting. What would you add to the list?

1. A dozen parks and playgrounds within a one-mile radius of our house (most with sprinklers!)
2. Museums, universities, and libraries steps from our front door
3. Interesting neighbors
4. Frequent city festivals and cultural events
5. Walking more than driving
6. Coffee shops everywhere for my caffeine fix
7. Lots of independent bookstores, retailers, and restaurants
8. Strong sense of community in the city
9. Variety and abundance of class offerings and resources for kids
10. Spontaneous learning moments fueled by the vibrancy of the city
