Technically, Sun City is not a city but a retirement community in Maricopa County (in the Phoenix metro area). But if you're looking to meet people who were old enough to stay up to watch the moon landing, then this is a good spot. There are a lot of outdoor activities in and around the 21 square miles of Sun City, where the sky is mostly clear year round and the temperature ranges from 43-106 degrees. Within the community, there's the singles social club, which schedules potlucks, game nights, billiards and golf get-togethers. There's bowling, jewelry-making and pickleball — every kind of club you can imagine.
