As the pandemic brought hectic urban lifestyles to a screeching halt, many city dwellers began thinking about moving to smaller towns in search of more space and a more relaxed pace. Although small towns are a great option — both financially and aesthetically — for setting up little "COVID nests," one should also be aware of the trade-offs that come with their quieter new life. Unlike big cities where folks barely have the time to even nod at their neighbors when they pass by them, small towns typically have tight-knit communities that get wind of, and broadcast, every last bit of new information. 

Add to that the considerable downgrade in accessibility that you're likely to notice pretty quickly and you're better off knowing exactly what you're getting into. That said, small towns do have their own subtle but irresistible charm and might just be what's been missing from your life. So check out these 25 tweets from folks who know small towns to get a better sense of the non-urban life:
