Why Do Residents Choose Sun City?

history of sun city

The First of Its Kind

Sun City opened in 1960 with just five home models, one shopping center, one recreation center, and one golf course—but as the first community of its kind, it drew over 100,000 people to its grand opening and earned a place on a Time Magazine cover. It began with an idea to develop an entire community devoted to providing a unique, active, healthy, and fun lifestyle for aging adults and set the stage for Active Adult and Retirement living we know today.
