Hello, my family and I are thinking about moving to PEI, and was wondering if there were any places to avoid when settling down to buy a home (in my mind it's kind of hard to imagine, but I have to ask).

Also, is it normal for a lot of people to commute from Summerside to Charlottetown (or vise versa)?

Your advise is appreciated.

Yes it is normal to travel those distances on PEI to work. Though if you know for sure you will be working in s'side or ch'town, you would be better off buying nearby. The main reason is in the winter the weather can get bad and then you are late to work or can't get to work. Or have to leave work early to get home before storm starts.

I know 2 winters ago people in rural pei lost at a week of work because the road wasn't plowed. And I'm not counting the storm days. But that was a record winter.

Anyway, I don't really suggest driving 1 hour to the city, then 1 hour out of the city back home as that is 2 hours per day, 5 days a week = 10 hour commute each week. There are some rural areas just outside of the cities that might have cheaper houses, or if you prefer rural over urban.

I'm sure in ch'town there are more family friendly areas that others. But I'm not from there so don't know.

there are car pools from Charlottetown to Summerside for people who work at Cavendish Farms, GST Center, etc. i believe there was a shuttle to the GST Center at one time, not sure if it's still running or not, i think it left from the Charlottetown Mall parking lot.
