Mileage to/from a certain place isn't always a good barometer of how long your actual travel time will be. Make sure you chat with someone who knows the area well. I would be very happy to help you learn more about the area and would be happy to send you some pics and video of local neighborhoods and attractions.
Good luck with your relocation!
