Sun City was not only Arizona's first 55+ active adult community, it was the 1st in the United States. Located only 16 miles northwest of downtown Phoenix, Sun City's unique street network design consists largely of concentric circles in four main pinwheels, 7 miles long and 3 miles wide. Their signature wide-open streets are all about accessibility. Golf carts roam freely, conveniently zipping around while still be environmentally friendly.
Homes in Sun City are preferred by buyers who want lower property taxes, reasonably priced homes and mature landscaping in a good location near extensive shopping and close to highways. Sun City residents are dedicated to a more leisurely lifestyle and unending choices of recreation for the retired, active adult.

The center is able to provide community and area maps including biking and hiking, and is a resource for recreation center information, golf, bowling, clubs, housing, fees, limited tourism brochures, and so much more.
