I prefer living in a city. More amenities - shops, hospitals, restaurants - job opportunities, greater diversity, a functioning public transport system and more reliable Internet.
The Internet out here is actually very reliable, 5G. The cell phone service, not so much. "Can you hear me now" is still a thing in these parts. But I agree with the rest of the things you listed.
It really depends on what your interests and priorities are. For me, I actually enjoy living really low tech and close to Nature. I'm planning to get a milk cow and some bees and chickens, and have an orchard and a garden, and try to be as self sufficient as possible. I'm not a prepper or anything, but I just enjoy living a simple, Waldenesque existence. I'm also amused by doing things the old fashioned way. I recently got an old timey reel lawnmower, and I kind of love it. It's good exercise, it doesn't make loud noises, it never has trouble starting, it doesn't burn gas, and I even enjoy watching the grass fly like confetti. Yes, I'm a dork. Lol.
Small town (under 2500 people) would be ideal. I’d prefer some land and be close to a small town where I could get the basics to keep living outside of what I couldn’t provide myself. I’d like to be close to a church, a community center for game night and potlucks and maybe one small movie theater. They still exist out here in Texas.
