I live out in the sticks so there is literally no children around for miles. But my wife has a homeschooling group who meets frequently and my son gets plenty of interaction that way, and through church on Sunday. Two more months and he'll have a baby sister to play with I guess.

Sounds to me like you and your husband need to start making new friends for him if you know what I mean.

Similar situation in the rural areas on my island as well. You have to find clubs and make play-dates because many neighborhoods are childless. The population is almost stagnant at 1% growth and expected to be officially in decline with in the next few years. Very scary prospects for isolated communities.

Honestly I prefer it that way. We lived in an area before where we had to be very purposeful about getting kids together and 2-3 times a week we got together with other moms and their kids at the library, for a walk, at the park, home play dates, or other activities. Now we live in an area where there are always kids on the playground in our sub and running around with no parent supervision. Not the kind of kids I really want my kids making friends with. So I like planning and being purposeful with the times my kids get to be with other kids. I want to know their parents or at least have them around.

We do library story time once a week and I'm trying to make friends in my area but that's not easy.
