What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Sun City

It's a quiet neighborhood and is in a retirement community. We don't have bars, or many chain restaurants in the community, which I really like. However, we are really close to neighboring towns that have all of that stuff. As far as where I like to do and go with family and friends, it's to one of the eight recreation centers that we have in the community.

Very quiet. Calming. Local businesses cater to the urgent needs of people. I like going to the local restaurants and enjoy the best appetizers for a reasonable price.

Walkable, quiet neighborhood with older residences three restaurants within walking distances. A CVS, Family Dollar, medical offices, Jack-in-the box, Two sit down resturants, bowling alley and One of the recreaction centers with pool, gym, clubs and lots of amenmities with in walking distance.

My neighborhood is a 55+ active senior area. We have local businesses within 3 blocks of our house and a rec center across the street. One of the finest Italian restaurants around is in that shopping area.

My neighborhood is very well maintained. We have a major grocery chain, a restaurant and a strip mall all within walking distance.

All About

Living in Sun City, AZ

Located just a few miles outside of Phoenix, Sun City has earned a reputation as a retirement community, offering apartment renters a chance sit back, relax and enjoy the sunshine. But the city of 42,000 residents also has a number of ways that people can stay active year-round.

Sun City has an abundance of opportunities for apartment tenants who are interested in golf. Within its city limits, those in Sun City apartments can enjoy eight golf courses and three country clubs. Residents can even join the city's weekend golf league, run through the local recreation center association. The league rotates through the eight member courses, and a number of different formats, such as best ball or scramble golf.

But the recreational activities also aren't limited to golfing either. The city's seven recreation centers offers more than 120 chartered clubs, including softball, swimming, knitting and nearly anything else that residents can come up with. The two bowling centers also allow residents, as officials put it, to "strike out on your own."

Those in Sun City apartments who are more interested in entertainment can take a stroll down to the Sun Bowl Ampitheatre, an open-air venue that hosts a number of concerts and other events throughout the year, or take one of a number of bus tours that leave the city for day or overnight trips every month.
