The word "urban" can be defined as

characterized by higher population density and vast human features in comparison to areas surrounding it.

Based on this definition, urban life varies greatly depending upon many factors that shape the urban area being described.

Urban life frequently includes dealing with the results of large numbers of people living close together. These results may include systems of public transportation and other services; opportunities for employment, entertainment and/or education; environmental pollution of various types; and a wide variety of types of housing for the people who live in the urban area. The lifestyle of people living in an urban area is frequently stereotyped as being more hectic or at a faster pace than that of residents living in a less populated center or in a rural setting.

Urban life is different from suburban or rural life because the population density leads to cultural differences. There are some things that only happen where there are a lot of people. Urban centers have more concerts, theater, art, and other cultural centers.
