Explore Retirement Communities in Arizona

Active adult retirement communities in Arizona are the perfect choice for those who want to remain physically fit and socially active while enjoying resort-style living. Between 2010 and mid-2018, Arizona’s population grew by 12.2% and retirement was the reason for the relocation cited by 37% of the Arizona newcomers. The most obvious reason to retire in Arizona is the beautiful climate, especially in the Phoenix metro area with over 330 days of warm weather and sunshine per year.

The Phoenix area also offers professional sports, boating, golfing, hiking, biking, sightseeing, fishing, and countless attractions such as the Desert Botanical Garden, Phoenix Zoo, Piestewa Peak, Montezuma Castle, Boyce Thompson Arboretum, Chase Field, and South Mountain Park, just to name a few. Baseball fans can enjoy Major League Baseball’s “cactus league” spring training for 15 teams in cities such as Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale, and others.  And golf lovers can choose from over 200 courses ranked number two behind Florida by for “golfiness” (a measure of the quantity and quality of courses).
