Area Information: Sun City is the first active, planned adult community in Arizona. It is perfectly situated in the greater Phoenix metropolitan area and residents can take full advantage of the Great American Southwest in every direction from the Painted Desert to the snow-capped mountains, to the sun-soaked beaches of California. The sun shines over ten months out of the year and there is no shortage of outdoor recreational opportunities ranging from a myriad of golf courses to 10 spring training facilities hosting 15 major league baseball teams. The Phoenix weather is what makes it an ideal city to live in, assuming you like sunshine and warm temperatures. Yes it gets very hot but it is typically only July and August that have high temperatures and the winter months are very mild.
