Things to do

Attractions to suit every taste in Sun City

From rock and roll renditions to nostalgic tributes, residents and guests can enjoy a variety of concerts and performances at the Sundial Recreation Center and the Sun Bowl, the latter an open-air amphitheater open for business each spring and fall. And if you’ve brought a furry friend with you, the Duffeeland Dog Park means that there’s a special spot just for them. Don’t forget, too, that even though it’s unlikely that you’ll find yourself short of something to do here, Sun City vacation rentals are just a short jaunt away from area attractions such as the Heard Museum and the Desert Botanical Garden.


Endless activities in Sun City

With 7 recreation centers, 2 bowling centers, and no fewer than 8 golf courses within a few miles of each other, not to mention more than 120 special interest clubs catering to a wide variety of tastes, feeling bored or lonely in Sun City is simply not an option. You’ll gather together with new friends to enjoy everything from crafting and performing arts to board games and photography to swimming and yoga. The only problem you might have is deciding which activity to do next. Non-residents can find out what’s on by stopping by the Sun City AZ Visitor Center and join in the fun thanks to short-term or annual Privilege cards.


Enjoy winter escapes in Sun City

The friendly folks at Sun City will welcome you with open arms at any time of the year, but most short-term guests choose to travel between November and April in the hope of escaping winter conditions elsewhere. Rates for Sun City vacation rentals are often at their highest this time of year, but savings can be made by booking a few months ahead. Summer brings with it temperatures of 100-plus, a kind of heat that’s not for everyone. Remember, though, that many pads here come with their own private pool. Failing that, a drink by Viewpoint Lake should cool you down nicely.
