Explore Arizona’s Best Communities

If you love a purple-orange desert sunset or a picturesque backdrop as you sip a glass of wine, consider moving to Arizona. This state has grown rapidly in past years, and there’s good reason for it: Arizona is simply gorgeous.

Why move to Arizona?

Arizona is a hotspot (literally!) for relocating and retiring. You get great weather, sunshine all year long, plenty of outdoors space, a low cost of living, and much, much more. If you’re looking for an affordable yet active place to live, Arizona is an ideal spot for you.

What are the benefits of living in Arizona?

From game night to tasty meals, top-line health care to home cleaning services, there are so many reasons people opt to stay in a senior living community. Read on to learn the benefits that people find when they choose this lifestyle. Then consider if it might suit you, too.

  • Relaxed pace of life: Arizonians know how to live life. You’ll find that because you’re surrounded by natural beauty, it’s easy to connect with the world around you and experience life in the moment.
  • Warm weather: Sun is aplenty in Arizona. If you’re a fan of the heat, you’ll love it here. Period.
  • Low taxes and reasonable cost of living: Arizona is a popular destination for those fleeing taxes in California or the cold of the Midwest. The low cost of living here makes it an easy choice for those who want to live big but spend little.
  • Natural wonders: Look out over the Grand Canyon and try to not feel inspired by this world we live in. Arizona will fill you with awe. But this famous park isn’t the only one to explore. See giant cacti at Saguaro. Experience ancient trees at Petrified Forest. Explore 24 national parks and monuments here, enough to fill years of adventure.
  • Outdoor activities: Don’t get us wrong—this desert place is more than red dirt. Arizona is dotted with rolling green wine countries (so get ready to go tasting at Alcantara or Oak Creek!), or you can get a boat and take it out on Havasu or one of the many sparkling blue lakes. Grab some binoculars and go bird watching, or peer around majestic red-rock buttes of Sedona.
