Since the original Sun City community started over half a century ago, there have been several dozen large-scale active adult communities in Phoenix, Arizona and its surrounding suburbs. In addition to the larger active adult communities there are many intimate age-restricted retirement communities in Phoenix, Arizona. Arizona is the birthplace of modern active retirement communities. In the 1960s, Del Webb introduced Sun City - the first age-restricted active adult community in the country. Since then, the concept of self-contained active adult communities has flourished. There are now in excess of 100,000 homes in 55-plus age-restricted communities in Arizona.
