What is the difference between city and town?
Difference in sizes. Town is a small city
In the United States, the main difference is that a city has its own municipal government, often an elected city council, and has substantial autonomy. A town may have a town council, but a town is still much less autonomous than a city. Instead, with respect to more important matters, the town is governed by a larger governmental entity, usually by the county in which the town is located.
I think that city is a great and modern place, with lot of cars, and builds. The town is a small and quiet place where i can rest :)
I think town is standing between outskirts and city .
In Britain the city has a cathedral, while the town has only churches. This is original difference between them.
The difference varies from country to country.[list here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City#Distinction_between_cities_and_towns ]
Generally speaking, a city is bigger than a town.
