About This Quiz

There are many differences between growing up in the big city and being raised out in the boonies. Some of those differences are obvious, like how well people in your town knew your business or how dangerous it was for you to cross the street as a kid. Some of the differences are a little more subtle, like what your favorite restaurant was or how many trips you took to the mall in your youth. Either way, we think that we'll be able to narrow in on the answer by the end of this quiz.

Perhaps you're quite used to people acting fairly rude to each other, and you tend to be in a bit of a hurry with everything you do. If you've experienced intense boredom, despite being surrounded by every entertainment and dining choice imaginable, we're likely to guess that you were a city kid.

Maybe most of your friends lived on the same block as you, and you rode your bikes around the neighborhood to catch up on the subdivision scene. If you lived near a cul-de-sac and there were more big box stores than you could count within a few miles of your home, we're pretty sure that you grew up in the suburbs.

It's time to take a trip down memory lane. Are you riding a bike or hopping on the subway?
