Del Webb was the mastermind behind the first master planned retirement community:  Sun City, Arizona. 

It seems likes years since…

Sun City launched on January 1, 1960, with five model homes a shopping center, recreation center and a golf course. 100,000 people showed up. The opening created so much fanfare Time magazine did a cover story on it.  Sun City revolutionized the idea of retirement and how retirees could live.

 Sun City was designed to be a self-contained community.  Webb wanted residents to have everything they would need within the borders of the community. So there are shopping centers, restaurants, doctors, a hospital, a library and much more. And now there are seven recreation centers, eight golf courses, two bowling centers and more than 120 special interest clubs to keep retirees busy. 

And I say it’s all right…

Well, maybe more that just alright.  Del Webb has gone on to build Sun City West, Sun City Grand, Sun City Anthem and Sun City Festival all in the Phoenix Metropolitan area.  Oh, and just to set the record straight Sun City is in unincorporated Maricopa County.   And yes it is legal to drive your golf cart on public streets but it must be registered with the Department of Motor Vehicles.  Friendship, socializing, recreation, and fun are the main staples of living in Sun City, Arizona.  The community has embraced this idea for over 55 years and has become multi-generational in a whole new way.  Children and Grandchildren of the original homeowners are moving to Sun City and loving it!
