My wife and I moved to Sun City Huntley from the Wrigleyville area in Chicago. I must say we've made more friends here and know more people than in the twenty-five years we lived in our old neighborhood. The community is organized around neighborhoods which makes it very easy to meet new people. There are also many organized activities available - sports, hobbies, trips, plays, shows, and many special interest groups - which can serve to widen your circle of friends and acquaintances. What I enjoy most, though, is simply living in a beautiful, safe and stable community surrounded by decent, hard-working people - our peers - many of whom we have come to know and care for deeply. It was a great choice for us.
Sun City Huntley is beautiful, friendly, and safe. I wasn't sure I was going to like it, but I love it now. It was so easy to meet people when I moved in and everyone is very friendly.
I enjoyed living here at first, but I have trouble meeting people my age,I'm way older and am not at alphysically fit. The people I have met won't put up with my endless chatter and constant complaints. but that's my main interest. I'm close to 80 years old and still dye my hair a flaming red color, maybe I am scaring people
We moved from Springfield, IL where Darlene lived her entire life. We were reluctant to make the move even though we have kids and grand kids in the area. We came to look and bought that very day.
We have not regretted it for a minute and love it here more than we could ever imagine. We have more fun and friends than a lifetime in Springfield. We can be as busy (or not) as we want to be. Darlene is involved in the Tennis Club and the Huntley Hoofers Tap Dance class which are both new endeavors. Darlene is also a caregiver to Jerry and the support of neighbors and friends are unbelievable. She also attends the Sun City Caregiver's Support Group.
My wife and I decided to move to Sun City Huntley in 2007 after nearly a decade of deliberation. I can honestly say that waiting all of those years to make a decision is the biggest regret of my adult life.
Sun City Huntley has been an absolute blessing for my wife and I. My wife has become far more active in the social scene than we have ever anticipated. She is a regular participant at water aerobics, quilting, and even volunteers at the local schools throughout the community. I enjoy living a lower profile life, tooling around occasionally at the fantastic woodshop on site.
The biggest surprise when moving here was how friendly all of our neighbors were. We bought a new construction home and found that nearly everyone around us was in the same boat as us. Moving in at the same time was also nice. There is a nice mix of singles and couples and while all age groups are represented, the overall vibe was much younger than I anticipated. Unlike me, many of my neighbors still work full time jobs.
Not everything has been perfect. If we could choose a home again, we probably would have picked a floor plan with one more bedroom and additional storage space. We also had a construction delay when moving in and had to wait a few months before we had grass. However, overall the Deb Webb staff was accommodating and put us at ease. They even came to our home several times after moving in to make small repairs. All things considered moving here was a wonderful decision.
