Sun City

Why you'd want to live in Sun City

A midday traffic jam in Sun City is like a traffic jam nowhere else. First, the jam will consist of no more than five vehicles. Secondly, the participants probably know each other by first name. And finally, they’re likely to involve street-legal golf carts. Stress-free “traffic jams” are part of the daily routine in this model retirement community by Del Webb that began in 1960. Webb picked an 8,900-acre plot in the Sonoran Desert that was just a half-hour drive from downtown Phoenix. Sun City has now grown to more than 46,000 residents. In 1978, Webb selected a site just four miles away and broke ground on Sun City West. Sun City West features homes that are just a little more upscale than the original Sun City and is slightly less crowded. To ensure its residents that the communities maintain their positions as haven for retirees, no one under 18 years of age are allowed to live in the Sun Cities for more than 90 days. Many activities are available to Sun City and Sun City West residents, including boating, fishing, and of course golfing. Eleven area golf courses in the two communities make this a golfer’s paradise, while the activity centers offer a wide variety of clubs and activities.
