I live in Queen Creek and it only takes me 45 min to get to Scottsdale. I like the Queen Creek area as it has more of a small town feel with lots of horses and farms dotting the landscape. I would take a ride and go look and see if you like the area. I suggest going from your work area to Queen Creek during your normal commute time to see what the commute is really like...

I work in Scottsdale, but have had to go to Phoenix a few times for meetings. My 45 min commute is really from San Tan Valley to Scottsdale. I leave for work around 6:30 and head home just after 4:00. It is about the same during non rush hour for me too. When I have gone to downtown Phoenix it has taken about an hour each way. I have taken what is probably a longer route home from Phoenix to avoid some of the rush hour traffic, but still get home in about an hour or so. Hope that helps...

You could always try it before you buy. There are a few monthly rentals available up there right now.

Yes, the commute is very bad if you leave at the normal rush hour time. However, you can take another road out, (Empire/Hunt Hwy) which cuts down time a bit because you can go right to Higley or Power and take the 202 to the 60. I love it here though, the weather is usually nicer than Mesa or Phx.

Perhaps at 6:30 AM it's an hour (I have a hard time believing it, but with light traffic on the 202, maybe), but later in rush hour, I don't see an hour being enough to get there. I can't believe you can get to QC in an hour from downtown Phoenix at 4:00 either, unless you are at the extreme NW corner of QC, and even then, you'll have to tell us your secret!
