Hamlet: Community with less than 50 members.
A small town generally is community possessing a post office and not much else.. Maybe a gas station or two. If you live within 10 minutes of a Wal-Mart, chances are you don't live in a small town. Also it should not be said that there is nothing to do if there is a Wal-Mart around, because there is a high probability that there is a theater or fast food restaurant around too.
"Man, city people get bored too easily, if they have one uneventful night, they automatically say 'I hate living in this small town' when actually they should be saying 'This isn't so bad, imagine living in a real small town.'"
