Sun City Arizona was not only the first of the 55+ active adult communities in Arizona, but also the first in the country. Del Webb started Sun City Arizona in 1960 and it now has over 26,000 homes, 11 golf courses and countless amenities and social clubs. It is renowned for its incredible home values, low property taxes and minimal association fees. Despite the construction of more newly established active adult communities in Arizona, Sun City Arizona remains a popular retirement destination. Sun City is preferred by buyers who want low property taxes, reasonably priced homes and mature landscaping in a good location near extensive shopping and close to the highway. These attributes, along with newly remodeled homes and recreation centers, make Sun City Arizona a value that cannot be ignored.
