I was shocked to find out how inexpensive the homes here are. My place was well under $100k and for everything you get it's just amazing. I can use all the different clubhouses in any Green Valley community and I have made a lot of wonderful new friends.

The variety of things to do is fantastic. I have really enjoyed trying some new things like photography and ceramics. I always wanted to learn how to take better pictures so that was one of the first clubs I joined. Everyone here is so friendly and encouraging. It's been wonderful!
