Welcome to Urban Tour 2011 An urban lifestyle is a way in which residents of a densely-populated region go about daily business. There is typically a greater amount of walking and use of public transportation. This involves a large mixing of cultures, a cosmopolitan society, high regard for personal fashion style, and appreciation of the arts.
