Phoenix, the Diverse City

Many adults today remain active well into their 70s and beyond, leading to a veritable explosion of 55+ active adult communities. Several of these can be found in and around Phoenix, Arizona. While this city of slightly more than 1.6 million residents mainly consists of younger age groups, the older generations have discovered this area to be the perfect place to settle down and plan for retirement years.

Phoenix is a unique, diverse city containing 15 urban villages that comprise the city proper. Real estate that caters to the older active adult can be found in most of these villages, whether you are seeking a resort-type lifestyle with a fabulous condo or a cozy cottage. Most of these 55+ PebbleCreek communities are self-contained and offer activities, clubs, and events geared to active adults and their interests. You're sure to find the ideal community for you, filled with like-minded neighbors.

National, county, and city parks will excite the outdoor enthusiast. Hiking, biking, camping, and climbing are a few of the activities to be enjoyed in these parks. With an average of 300 sunny days per year, golfers will delight in playing a few rounds at one of the over 200 golf courses around the city.

Sports fans will find year-round enjoyment attending both pro and college basketball, baseball, football, and even hockey games. Major league stadiums and sports arenas dot the city and have your seat waiting!

For the more cultural-minded, Phoenix has an active performing arts and fine arts community, along with a myriad of museums that cover everything from architecture, local culture, and history.

Whatever your pleasure or favorite activity, Phoenix can provide it. This 'Valley of the Sun' city in the Sonoran Desert has long, hot summers and short, mild winters - the best of all worlds for active adults seeking their 'forever home'.
