Information About Retirement Communities in Sun City

The city is a destination for a lot of retirees and snowbirds, making retirement communities in Sun City in high demand. As of the 2010 census, the population was 37,499. Sun City is actually an unincorporated part of Maricopa County, and it’s an age-restricted communisunset over Lake 3ty. That means residents must be 19 years of age or older, and at least one member of a household must be 55 or older. The entire city caters to retirees, with lots of clubs, golf courses, and activities for older active adults. Taxes in Sun City are notoriously low, with no sales tax or school tax (as there are no residents under 19, there are no schools), and property taxes that are among the lowest in the nation.

Volunteer opportunities are also available for interested seniors, and seniors can also receive legal assistance.
