Active Adult Retirement Communities
Phoenix Active Adult Communities are plentiful in Arizona! So much so that it can be difficult to make a decision on where to start your home search! You may hear people talking about the East Valley or the West Valley and have no idea what that means. I-17 divides the East and West valley. East Valley communities are Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Sun Lakes, Gilbert and Apache Junction. West Valley includes Avondale, Buckeye, Glendale, Goodyear, Peoria, Sun City and Surprise.

There are pros and cons to each side of the valley, but the biggest advantage to the East Valley is the proximity to airports! With the I-10, the 101 and the 202 a ride to the Sky Harbor International Airport is only a half hour. But, with the West Valley, you will have 45 minutes to a one hour commute. Some know immediately where they want to be because of family or friends. Others, are just starting to get familiar with the area.
