I like peace and quiet. I like driving and not worrying about parking. I like having a yard and (some) space. I like the relative cleanliness, even if it seems sterile to other people. I can visit the city if I want any of the aforementioned things (although my interests are mostly available to me without going to SF/Oakland). Do I miss out on some diversity? Probably yes, but that pales in comparison to the advantages.
