Before we moved here last year from WA state, I was a tired 72 year old retiree. We bought thinking we could sedately retreat into retirement. How WRONG we were. Instead of being sedate, our schedule is fuller now than at any time in the past 20 years. Yesterday we were on the LV strip at Planet Hollywood watching Murray the Magician (plus having dinner after the show). Today my wife is going to one of her classes and I am going to a committee meeting. Tomorrow we will be attending the weekly 60s and 70s Rock and Roll dance at the community restaurant. The day after, we will be at the annual Home and Garden show at the community activity center. Sunday, it will be a day of rest. And then on Monday, unfortunately I have a doctor's appointment. But on Tuesday I have a community health seminar on diabetes and on Wednesday afternoon, I have a regularly scheduled card game. I am still tired, but it's not from feeling sorry for myself; it's from being the most active I have ever been in my life...and I love it.
I have only been in Sun City Summerlin for a very short time but I have been very happy with my descion. The pictures you see here are what the community really looks like. The grounds are beautiful, the restaurants are nice, they have great views. When walking around the community you have gorgeous views of the mountains, the LV valley and the LV strip, especially at night. And everyone has been so very friendly and helpful
We've lived here about 15 years. One might think after all this time I might have found something significant to complain about but the truth is...I haven't. Living in Sun City is a permanent vacation. I might miss the beach but, on the other hand, we have indoor and outdoor pools so I have access to water 12 months a year. The homes and grounds are very well maintained. The HOA fees are more than reasonable for the services and upkeep provided. When we left the east coast many people asked if we knew anyone here. I said yes, I have a lot of friends in Sun City; I'm just waiting to meet them! (My attitude has served me well.) If you're interested in a beautiful retirement community with many activities and clubs this may well be an environment you wish to consider.
We purchased a home in Sun City Summerlin in March and have not yet spent much time there but after researching several 55+ communities, we knew on our initial drive through the beautiful community that it was where we wanted to buy a second home. The community offers a very impressive amount of both indoor and outdoor activities. The Association is very well organized and very responsive to newcomers. Close proximity to shopping, restaurants, medical facilities, etc. was also a huge factor in our decision to purchase a home in Sun City Summerlin.
We are looking forward to becoming a part of the community and enjoying all that Sun City Summerlin has to offer.

We've lived here for almost 5 years and love it! We are very active in the community and enjoy making the most of every day. It's been great having the time and the facilities available to try lots of new things. The golf here is fabulous as are the restaurants. When we purchased a home here there were plenty of resale options to choose from. It was kind of a hard choice to pick the perfect one! Really, it's more about the amenities and the lifestyle here rather than our home.
Our review must be short for we are new residents and are looking forward to meeting new people and sharing in the communities events. Our conception of Sun City Summerlin has been positive.
