    The town I currently live in has a population density of 1002.4 per square mile. It's a nice small town, very comfortable. We live two blocks or so from main street and it's still a suburban rather than urban feel. We walk everywhere. The library is about a 5 minute walk, and the grocery store about 15 -20. Walmart is about an hour.

    Where we used to live had a population density of 2,327.3/sq mile, we lived in the suburbs but it had a more urban feel, even though it was a trailer park. We have a MUCH larger yard and much quieter neighborhood now. The closest convenience store was about 10 minutes away on foot, the closest grocery store about 25 minutes. Walmart was about an hour away.

    Where I grew up the population density was 148.1 people per square mile. Of course, that was in PA out in the sticks. It was great, so long as you had a car. The closest grocery store was about 5 or 6 miles away, and even the closest convenience store was about 3 miles away. There was no Walmart at that time, but the closest department store was about 15 to 20 miles away, in the nearest city.
