Santa lives in Sun City, Arizona

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Real Estate

Many kids probably wonder what Santa does during the "off season."  Well, now we know, he lives in Sun City, Arizona. Yes, Santa is a snow bird?  How do I know this? I met him of course! Sun City is a wonderful retirement community with 7 recreational centers.  While swimming with my mother and son at the Marinette Rec Center in Sun City, we saw a man who looked very very familiar. Yes, it was Santa.   He posed for a few pictures with my son and then even gave him an autographed picture. 

If you are over age 55 and looking for a great place to live, consider Sun City. Many of the homes, which were mostly built in the 60s and 70s have been remodeled.  There are single family homes, townhomes (single level), condos, twin homes (duplexes), and apartments.  The people who live here are friendly and helpful; they really take care of one another.  I know this because my mother lives there. She loves it.  There are 7 rec centers with ammenities like heated pools (some shallow and some deep), bowling, billiards, art classes (painting, pottery, jewelry making, wood working, etc.), fitness centers, and various group activities, leagues, and day trips.  Sun City is truly a wonderful community in which to live and socialize with other active adults.  Oh, and for you golf fans, there are plenty of great golf courses! You can even drive your golf cars on the streets around town.

Sun City is close to shopping, restaurants, and various other activities.   Within 6 miles are the NFL Cardinals, NHL Coyotes, MLB spring training (Mariners - Padres-Rangers-Royals), Arrowhead Mall, Challenger Space Center, Wildlife World Zoo, Arizona State University-West, Rio Salado College, Lake Pleasant, Broadway Dinner Theater, and many other features.

If you'd like more information about living in Sun City, please call me anytime and I will gladly give you a "phone tour" of this wonderful community. Who knows, maybe if you visit, you'll also get to meet Santa!

Wonderful post, and it is so kind of you to give Santa more exposure.  I have always wondered where he hangs out.
