I grew up in the country, close to the city of Milwaukee, but still in the country.
Where did you grow up?
City girl here. Born in St. Louis, grew up in Houston. Since marriage, we’ve lived in Nashville and Chattanooga. This is a just-right sized city.
p.s. My parents lived “in town”, too – a small-town county seat; grandparents were town people, too.
My home town is a city in its own right, but it’s only thirty-five miles from New York City. That made us a suburb, a commuter town for workers who couldn’t afford Greenwich — and Greenwich really wants to be its own state anyhow.
I grew up in a mining town. Mines closed. Town struggling to survive. I have lived in numerous places. I like Myrtle Beach a lot.
Grew up in a city, about 22,000 population.
I grew up in San Francisco and have always been a city girl, though I have grown accustomed to living in a 60,000 person town after nearly 40 years.
I grew up between two “cities”, each about 20,000 people in rural Wisconsin. I had neighbors, but no sidewalks or streetlights. I rode my bike by myself over 2 miles to my best friend’s house and it wasn’t considered very far, and went fishing in the creek behind my house on my own. It was definitely country living.
I grew up on a small, family dairy farm in the middle of the country, in the middle of the 20th Century, a way of life rapidly disappearing from the American landscape.My home town was Preston, Iowa, a community of 1,000 people near the Mississippi River. I wrote a memoir – Growing Up Country: Memories of an Iowa Farm Girl – is based on my experiences as a 10-12 year old.
