When my husband and I decided to retire to Arizona, we visited many 55+ communities. Solera at Johnson Ranch was by far the best community we looked at....the scenery is stunning; the neighborhood is great (friendly neighbors, well groomed yards, gorgeous landscaping; sidewalks to stroll on; wonderful amentities) and the homes are extremely well built with great layouts. The foothills within Solera are breathtaking; we found no other community with foothills in the back yards...we just love them!!!
My husband and I moved to Solera about a year ago and we have found it to be everything we had hoped. I wanted the opportunity to keep busy and meet new people and I've been able to do that very easily. There are tons of clubs to join and lots of special events. My husband loves the golf at Johnson Ranch. We can use all those amenities too although we've kept plenty busy over at the Solera clubhouse.
It's nice to have so many options of things to do! We are very happy with our decision to move here and feel like we made the best choice for us. We still visit many of our friends in Chandler and Mesa but it's also nice to entertain them in our new home here!
