    My husband and I bought a house over a year ago. We are in the process of completely remodeling and the house looks great. We love our neighbors, excellent people. The facilities are superb and there are so many different things to get involved in (crafts, exercise, hobbies, events and community outreach). It's an older, larger, well-established community with something for everyone. Many homes are remodeled for those who really want trouble, but there are also some that you can do yourself. The constructions of these houses are solid. They are older, but retro style. I can only say good things about this community.

    (Video) AVOID LIVING IN A 55 PLUS COMMUNITY - Problems in Adult Retirement Communities - Don’t Buy 55+

    My husband and I moved to Sun City from Denver about three years ago. I truly believe this is the best retirement community in the valley. It has good facilities and is big enough that you don't feel like you're living in an aquarium. Baby boomers are moving in and renovating homes. New clubs are always being established to meet current interests, and all facilities are well maintained. I don't play golf, but I enjoy the beautiful scenery they offer while cycling nearby. It's not a gated community, but it feels very safe. It has hiking clubs, cycling clubs, volleyball clubs and others. I guess what I'm trying to say is that if you're still active, you'll find plenty to do. If that's not your thing, don't worry, you'll still find plenty of other types of clubs to explore. Come and visit, I don't think you will be disappointed, you might be pleasantly surprised.

    We bought our house in 1999 before we were old enough to live here and remodeled our 1960's house. When I retired in 2000 at the age of 52, we were snowbirds for the first 6 years, but the constant packing/unpacking for 5 months (and 3200 miles of travel) was a drag - the things we needed were always somewhere else! We missed all the activities in Sun City and the good friends we made here. There's something for everyone here, and if you hear someone say they're bored, it's only their own fault. The pictures on this page do not show our new Pickleball Pavilion here - just a few outdoor courts. We have a total of 27 pickleball courts in Sun City. The Pavilion at Marinette Recreation Center has 8 indoor/lighted courts and 16 outdoor lighted courts, plus 7 outdoor lighted courts at Mountain View Recreation Center. Marinette hosts big games throughout the year.

    The article also fails to mention the fact that Sun City is in the process of building a new home. 142 new houses are being built, and 3 models are available for viewing. However, it will be the last new building because there is no more room.

    Originally from rural Maine, Sun City is a dream come true for us as we love all the theaters, museums and other cultural events that are within easy driving distance in either direction! If you really miss it, just a quick 1-2 hour drive north to see the snow!

    There is nothing outdated about Sun City, except for people's old misconceptions. We may be the oldest community of retirees 55+ in the country, but we are also the best! Del Webb is a genius and our volunteer board is making sure our town stays relevant and financially sound - unlike many other communities trying to follow in Del Webb's footsteps!

    It's been six years since I last criticized the community, and in that time Suncity has invested $40 million in our outstanding facilities. Our biggest challenge is of course perception, because we are the first and we are the most outdated.

    Nothing is further from the truth. Knowing we were the oldest (January 1960) was the driving force behind the original Sun City behaving in ways most people never imagined or considered. As you drive through the community and pass the 7 recreation centers and 8 golf courses, you will notice the investment in solar panels. But instead of being on top of buildings, we build facilities on spacious parking lots to provide shade and drastically reduce utility costs. The residents love them, which is exactly what you don't expect from your first age-restricted community.

    As impressive as they are, it barely scratches the surface of the big picture of Solar City. We raise between $6 million and $8 million annually for the Preservation and Improvement Fund (PIF), all from buyers at Sun City estate sales. Beginning in 1999, we will raise more than $100 million in capital to update, remodel or rebuild our facilities through 2025.

    It doesn't stop there as buyers have been remodeling homes at a record pace over the past 15 years. Sun City Residences were built from 1960 to 1978. Their bones are good, almost all interior walls have been knocked down, and they are tailored to create the kind of open concept that many baby boomers aspire to. For anyone with a vision, it's pure pleasure to be able to buy and furnish a property with your own touch.

    When it comes to housing, we have it all, literally. Del Webb calls it his "6 Ways of Living" and it's one of the reasons why Sun City is so unique. From family houses, garden terraces, houses with terraces, semi-detached houses, four-bed houses and apartments, we have everything. I often read of many new developments outside of the boomer price range where buyers can still find options under 100K. For those on a bigger budget, we have homes up to around $500,000 on our two man-made lakes. With 27,000 rooftops, Sun City truly has something for everyone.

    It wouldn't be right to end this without touching on the Sun City lifestyle. Last night we went to a free concert for residents at the Sun Bowl. This magnificent grass amphitheater is filled with 8,000 happy people watching a performance in honor of Bob Seeger. This kicks off our Sunday concert series after an amazing chamber concert at Sun Dial Auditorium where our average 1,500 ticket buyers attend some of the best entertainment in the West Valley.

    This is just one aspect of Sun City and why most people who come here are surprised. We have over 130 clubs for various activities. Since our new Pickleball Arena, visitors are drooling over the many games we host. Three years ago we spent $150,000 to create a long-term fish habitat plan so that residents can enjoy year-round fishing, and the addition of 4 paddle boats has sparked interest in the spectacular area of ​​interest around Lake View Point.

    As always, I tend to ramble on, but when it comes to Sun City, I don't have enough time to say how special it is. From music (with over a dozen different pre-made or listening options), sports, crafts to something more sensible like our very own Lifelong Learning Club, the possibilities are endless.

    I can't finish this without our cutest features...we can afford it. Our annual loss estimate is less than $500 ($41 per month). We have no local school taxes so we average about $800 a year. Golf carts are legal and there are around 10.00 here (carriage is very cheap). Our streets are wider and our grounds larger than any other age-restricted community. We are a great value, we are a community built on great values. We're not the newest, biggest or flashiest, but you won't find better value for your retirement.

    No matter where you end up buying, you should try Sun City. It was the gold standard for every society that came after us. If nothing else, we'll give you an idea of ​​what you're looking for as a starting point for what to expect from your own place in the sun.

    We went out in the summer of 2014. Not knowing anything about Sun City, we had a weekend. We only looked at a few places and knew this was the place for us. We bought a house. And he never looked back. Everything happens here. If you don't use amines. It is your responsibility because there is so much to do. There are so many clubs, shows and events to do. We are so happy to have found our little home.

    I just closed on my home in Sun City. The property and facilities are well maintained with a cool retro vibe. People are friendly and actively pursue old and new interests. As a young (56) baby boomer, when deciding whether to return to Arizona from overseas or find a new place in the US, Sun City was my choice. I like it and highly recommend it. 55 Places was the best site for my Sun City questions.

    Using 55 I was able to search and find "a house that suits me". The site is easy to navigate to find not only great information about the home, but also everything else (rec center, HOA (if applicable), safe neighborhood, etc.). used them. One thing that stands out is that there are "real phone numbers" to contact agents working in these specific areas, and they will actually call you if you leave a message.

    If I ever move again (I hope not) I will use this site again as it is easy to use and works very well.

    We love our home in Sun City. The neighborhood is nice and tidy. We are satisfied with all the activities in which we can participate and all the contents available to us.

    Almost every resident of Sun City can (and if given the chance, will) give you a lengthy dissertation on the benefits of living here. We all seem to enjoy the active lifestyle, the many amenities and the fact that all our neighbors are almost the same age and interests as us.

    However, the best way to get a feel for life in Sun City is to live here for a while, as a previous reviewer did. Rent here for a few months in the winter, buy a privilege card that gives you access to the wonderful recreation center and join clubs with similar interests to yours. It is very cheap to do. Or, if you're a golfer, get involved in golf. Park your motorhome in our excellent, secure and affordable motorhome storage facilities. Secure your horses at Sun City Stables. Man, we got it all!

    If you follow my advice above, I can almost guarantee you will want to spend your retirement years here.

    Suncity grows because of you. When I moved to Arizona 10 years ago, I looked around while renting a house to decide where to buy a house. At first I rejected Sun City because I thought everything was old. After all, this place was opened in 1950.

    Well, after almost a year of research, I finally bought a house in Sun City because: it's very affordable; the houses, although built 30-50 years ago, have mostly been upgraded and modernized; amenities are top-notch (including 11 golf courses and 7 recreation centers), close to the 101 Freeway and only half an hour from Sky Harbor Airport; it's safe; people are nice; restaurants, shopping, live theater, movie theaters, medical facilities within a mile or two (really anything you could need).

    I could go on and on, but finally I'll say that now that I'm 10 years older, I like it better and (guess what) people don't look so old anymore!

    Nice to see this review system in place. One of the first things we learned from Sun City was that there is a sense of sharing and caring that we don't always find in environments that don't have age restrictions.

    I am a regular visitor to the 55place website and find the articles interesting and the analysis from other communities fascinating. For example, a recent column was about "affordable" neighborhoods in California.

    This is the perfect opportunity to live in the pristine community of Sun City Arizona. Affordable is a relative term and Sun City is (in my opinion) the best option for value for money. More content at the lowest price imaginable. My wife and I pay $432 a year; we have 8 golf courses and 7 recreation centers, all accessible by our golf carts, which are legal (otherwise electric). In fact, with property taxes of $1,000 a year for our 2,700 square foot home, we are truly an "affordable" place to live.

    While I'm rambling, let me tell you the rest of the story: While Sun City is a great value, it's been more like a self-governing community for 50 years. We rely on the millions of hours our residents give back every year. We have a fantastic hospital within the walls and our medical care is excellent.

    Perhaps the best thing in the world is that Sun City's age is irrelevant. My family lives here and I refuse to come to Sun City because I don't want to be with a bunch of "old men". At 49 I had a breakdown and within a day of being here I called my wife in Minnesota and said we're going to retire here; she started laughing at me. Three months later she visited again and found the same relationship.

    We bought a condo at 51, rented it for the winter and retired at 55 and moved to Sun City for good. We're baby boomers and I'm an ardent workaholic (note the "yes"). I never looked back because the community gave me the opportunity to be involved in something very special.

    Visit us and you will be as surprised as I was. It's nice to know that love at first sight still exists, right?
