Relocation questions

Thinking of moving to the summerville area, can anyone help me out with a few questions. Is there larger grocery stores around. How long is the commute into Charleston if my husband has to work in that area. It looks like the area is getting pretty built up, which is okay by me because I like neighborhoods. We are coming from NJ so I don't want a lot of congestion, just enough of amenities and places to meet new people. Any input is appreciated.

TripAdvisor does not support relocation questions, it is a site for questions regarding vacation travel. It is likely that your post will be deleted for this reason. Try citydata.com to get the info you are looking for.

I don't know what you are expecting ~ but this area is very built up. Major chain grocery stores, tons of traffic. Summerville to Charleston to work can easily be an hour each way during rush hour, morning and evening.

The only way to determine where you might want to live and what sort of commute you can tolerate is to come down for a visit and drive around Charleston's suburban and exurban sprawl. Keep in mind that Metro Charleston, which includes Summerville, is one of the fastest growing areas in the nation.

More tips:

Post your future travel questions on the Charleston forum as more people check the Charleston forum than check the Summerville forum. Pretty much everyone in Charleston knows Summerville and the surrounding area, so you will get plenty of knowledgeable responses.

Also, don't use "relocation" in your subject line, as relocation posts are generally deleted as "not travel related."
