I moved here from the midwest in 1993 and was looking for a community that offers a small town feel in a very big city. Sun Lakes offers all that and more.
Tons of amenities, there is reciprocity between 5 subdivisions so you have lots of choices regarding clubhouses, golf courses, swimming pools and much more. Many communities have just one clubhouse, maybe a couple of pools.
Easy access to the airport and major freeways. Like I tell people "We are close, but not too close." Hop on 101 and be in Scottsdale in less than a half hour.
Everything you need for day to day shopping is right here and lots of additional shopping and restaurants very close, to include Chander Fashion Square Mall less than 10 minutes away.
It doesn't get any better, been here for 20 years and no regrets!
