7 Unassuming Benefits of Rural Living

7 Unassuming Benefits of Rural Living

While the population in rural America is dwindling, there are those who still choose the country life for a host of reasons. Can you relate to these benefits of living in rural America?

  1.  It’s quiet.
    It’s peaceful being able to escape the daily grind and the plethora of noises heard in the city, or even a small town. Pull up a chair on the front porch and savor the serenity of quietness.
     
  2. The scenery.
    Start the day by viewing the sunrise each morning and watching it set each night, all from your bedroom window. After sunsets wander in awe at the dark skies sprinkled with glowing stars.
     
  3.  Space to play.
    Those that live the rural life can attest to the benefit of having room for the kids or dogs to play. Let the kiddos loose on a sunny afternoon for hours of entertainment in the backyard.
     
  4. Room for a garden. Grow your own food and savor the bounty that comes from your backyard garden. Plant your favorites and enjoy the sweet tastes of summer without having to trek to the store or farmers market.
     
  5. Freedom.
    Want to have chickens strolling around your yard? By living in the country, you have the freedom to do so!
     
  6. Privacy.
    Feel like getting the mail in your pajamas? Go right ahead.
     
  7. You know your neighbors.
    Sure, your closest neighbor may be one mile down the road, but you know them, their grandparents, cousins and their sister’s nephew.
