Arizona independent living communities know the lifestyles of active seniors quite well. Arizona is a state well known for the fact that it caters to seniors and the active lifestyles they enjoy. Phoenix in particular, also known as the valley of the sun, is the most popular of all cities in Arizona for retirement. The word retirement does not mean slowing down and taking it easy though, on the contrary. Independent living facilities in the valley of the sun have a wide range of activities that the active senior can participate. These activities range from local, to in-state tours, to the out of state tours for the senior who wants to see it all.

Senior independent living is just that, independent.

This is what makes an independent living community so appealing to a lot of people. Whether you want to take your car, the bus service, or the light rail to go where you want to, it is your choice. If you want to stay in your community to have fun, that is your choice as well. Some communities have so many activities in-house that some people find there is no need to go elsewhere for their fun.
