Love it

Sun City Grand in Surprise. We have lived here for 2.5 years and absolutely love it. The amenities are crazy good. The property is beautiful. Also it is 45+ age so it has a very young vibe, which we love!Karyn Zigler

Too long!

This last winter we bought a house in Sun City Grand. What a great place we love it! They have so much to do there if they’re anything on God’s green Earth you can think of doing. They have it! Their welcome brochure is 58 pages long! Wow. Look it up. The list is too long!Dave Barkus

Amenities

Sun Village is where I live and I am only 60. It is a great place, gated and lots of amenities. Everyone is so friendly. Condos, casitas and houses to choose from.Pamela Reagle

Gated

My mother in law lives in Arizona Traditions. It’s gated and really pretty. Golf course, etc. Cynthia Young

New

In the Asante part of Surprise (Loop 303 and Grand) there is an area for 55+. Heritage I think. My aunt lives there. Very pretty. Gated with a community center (pool, spa, BBQ, club house, park with lake, and a game area). New construction. Brenda Bronson
