Not a lot of people know about the perks of living or visiting a village. But not to worry, Drinking in America has broken it down to the best nine things about villages.

1) Fresh air all the time.

No mysterious smells coming from the streets from god-knows-what. Just the smell of good old nature.

2) It’s peaceful and quiet.

You don’t have to listen to your upstairs neighbors doing Zumba (Are they trying to break through the ceiling?) or your downstairs neighbor blasting Nickelback like it’s 2005. None of that nonsense when you’re in a village. Just the sounds of the birds and the wind. Peaceful AF.

3) There’s always fresh produce.

No more of this Wholefoods overpriced-organic stuff (even though Amazon did just take over and drop the prices by almost half). This is real, straight from the farm produce. Chances are you even know the farmer who grew it.

4) You save money.

It’s easy to save your money while in the countryside villages. No pricey stores to tempt you with the latest trends. No need for VR glasses or other crazy gadgets.

5) You never feel alone.

Unlike the city where you could be surrounded by thousands of people yet not know a single one of them. Every village has a close-knit community, which means you’ll always have company when you’re feeling a little lonely.

6) You can lead a more active lifestyle.

No need to hit SoulCycle. You have the great gym of the outdoors right outside. Rolling hills to run/bike/walk/or do whatever your little in-shape-heart desires.

7) You can see a beautiful starry sky every night.

There aren’t any city lights to get in the way of your view of the stars. You’ll get a full view of the Milky Way and more.

8) You don’t have to worry about parking.

Goodbye parking meters and parking tickets!!

9) You drink Koskenkorva Vodka.

It’s vodka from a village. Which means that it’s made with quality local barley, pure local spring water and the continuous distillation process, which results in one of the smoothest, purest vodkas in the world.
