My wife and I moved here from Akron, Ohio in 2013. We absolutely love the place! By chance, we had visited the area on Sun City Grand's opening weekend years ago but, at the time, were not yet age-eligible and ready to acquire a property here. We followed the community's development over the years as we had decided that Arizona would be a frequent vacation destination until our retirement. When that day came, we found a wide range of extremely well maintained homes available for purchase in the secondary market and, as luck would have it, located exactly the house we would have built 'way back then' had we been able to do so. Since settling here, we have made good friends and taken advantage of the many amenities appealing to our respective interests. We find ourselves in possibly the best physical conditions of our lives thanks in large measure to the many recreational opportunities the Sun City Grand community and our surrounding area offer. We have found the many shopping, entertainment and recreational opportunities immediately outside Sun City Grand itself to be convenient and readily accessible. In addition, the 'high country' of Arizona is easily reached within a fairly short drive as is downtown Phoenix, our nation's sixth-largest city, with all the aspects of 'big city living' you might want. In like fashion, Scottsdale - a very upscale community with all that this implies - is only about twenty miles east of us. With the exception of its challenging winters, we were happy with our lives in Akron but we are absolutely thrilled to have 'made the jump' here.
I really enjoy the friendly atmosphere of Sun City Grand. I've made more friends than I have time for! I typically walk every evening and I really enjoy chatting with my neighbors and feeling like I am part of a big family. My home is the Desert Rose floor plan and I get so many compliments on how beautiful it is. The layout is great for my home office plus there is an extra bedroom for my daughter when she visits from Nevada.
