That makes sense. I think we will stick to Derry/LD. He did mention that the tolls for everyday on the turnpike suck! not to mention how much he ends up driving. I just want to make sure that we are in a nice area! The family that I have in CV, clearly think its better than Derry/LD. I guess its just bias. We will continue to think about our options! Thanks for all of your input, ki0eh!

The difference between a 15 minute commute and a 45 minute commute is an hour a day. Many other things could be done with hundreds of hours a year.

We could have chose the west or east shore.... one meant a long commute for me and the other one for her. Don't disregard the close proximity to Hershey Park, the Giant Center and even close towns like Mt. Gretna and Lititz if you reside on the east shore.

The one thing I like about the east shore is the land areas surrounding Hershey itself are more preserved thane the commercial boom on the west shore. This is mainly due to Milton Hershey Co. still owning the land and not having it bought up by investors.

The west shore has its perks it just seems too commercialized for us...

Also, for schools I would lean more toward Lower Dauphin than Hershey. It seems like a more accepting district.
