In large part due to its warm, sunny climate and relatively low cost of living, Arizona has been a retirement mecca for generations. In fact, the very first age-restricted community--Sun City--was built here in the 1960s. That concept has most fully flowered on the other side of the country, in Florida; yet Arizona can lay first claim to the concept, and many people still prefer the dry climate of the desert state.
There are three major population centers in Arizona: Tucson in the south; the gigantic Phoenix metropolitan area in the south-central region; and Flagstaff in the north-central region. Arizona's far northern region is vast and largely empty, consisting of widely-separated small settlements and large tracts of national parks, monuments, and recreation areas. It is also home to some of the largest Indian reservations in the country.
This category encompasses the entire range of independent retirement living. The communities listed here are designed to promote a rich life experience based on active recreation and social interaction with other seniors.
