Arizona, and the Valley in particular, is nationally considered the best place to retire. Arizona Traditions offers a fresh new take on the retirement community, and is fast becoming a standout for a number of reasons. Originally opening in 1996, Arizona Traditions is a 55+ age-restricted gated community that conveniently rests just west of the newly finished 303 freeway. It’s an AZ oasis, overflowing with a town-style charm while sparkling with state-of-the-art amenities. Thankfully–finally!–a neighborhood those of us who wish to avoid the pitfalls of the many mismanaged, overcrowded and overpriced adult communities in places like Sun City.
Arizona Traditions Amenities
Arizona Traditions earns its top-notch reputation due in large part to a D.R. Horton design that incorporates the intimacy of a small town, the ingenuity of a nearly 25,000 sq. ft clubhouse, and an intricately interwoven 18-hole golf course. It’s also a smartly centered setting: residing between shopping malls, sporting events, and supermarkets–all while ably ambling amidst some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world along the White Tank Mountains. Currently, there are just over 1,700 single-family homes, ranging from 1,200-2,400 sq. ft.
The clubhouse here is a major point of interest, while also serving to secure your home’s value. It comes complete with both an Olympic lap pool, as well as a resort-style pool. It also boasts a 700+ capacity ballroom, as well as several other social activity choices. These include a super-clean and constantly upgraded fitness center, a peaceful and well-stocked library, many arts and crafts studios, and reliably well-kept tennis courts, a softball field, shuffleboard, bocce ball, and many carefully placed biking trails.
Arizona Traditions Golf Course is an 18-hole standout that abounds with adventure and will appeal to golfers of every skill level, and not just for its stunning views, but each hole emphasizes the great love for the game and the care put into it as an experience as a whole. You would expect nothing less from the course’s avid designer, Dick Bailey. The “19th hole” here is an attraction all to itself in the Arizona Traditions Restauarant, a sports bar providing invigorating excitement for celebrating with friends, family, or for business. There’s even a separate dining room for more formal occasions.
