Sun City West is an active adult retirement community located northwest of central Phoenix,
about 45 minutes from downtown and a short distance from Luke Air Force Base.
An expanding network of freeways makes it easy to access any part of the
Valley of the Sun including the impressive Sky Harbor International
airport, exclusive Scottsdale shopping, and the beautiful University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the NFL Cardinals and 2015 Super Bowl.
Within a 20 minute drive are two baseball spring training stadiums. You can find all of the Cactus League stadiums here. Next to the University of Phoenix Stadium is the arena home of the NHL Coyotes.
The beautiful Lake Pleasant with its miles of fishing, sailing and boating pleasures is also close by.
The Arrowhead Towne Center offers major department stores a short distance east of Sun City West. Two multi-screen movie theaters with stadium seating are also nearby along with many fine nationally known restaurants.
Two hours north, you will find the spectacular red rock country of Sedona. It's only a short drive further to Flagstaff, the jumping off point to the Grand Canyon, magnificent Lake Powell, and the Navajo and Hopi Indian reservations.
Two hours south lies Tucson with many cultural and botanical delights. Another hour and you are in Old Mexico. Arizona is a wonderland of mountains, canyons, cacti and incredible desert sunsets at no extra charge!
