5 Reasons for Retirement Planning in Arizona


Home to great weather, golf and more, the Grand Canyon State and home to our golf course communities in Arizona is often considered as one of the best places to retire. For those seeking there forever home to cherish this next chapter of life, look no further than Arizona. See below for five great reasons to consider Arizona as a retirement destination.  

1. Weather
With more than 300 days of sunshine, Arizona boasts incredible weather year-round. Winters in the Valley are mild but if you’re itching for a snow day, Flagstaff and northern cities are easily accessible and as of late have offered some of the best ski conditions in the southwest. 

2. Golf
Arizona attracts golf enthusiasts from around the country every year to play on its 300+ courses statewide, including our two Nicklaus-inspired golf courses. From traditionally-styled links to modern target courses, Arizona has plenty of golf to offer for players of all levels.

3. Culinary Variety
The Greater Phoenix Area has been making its mark on the culinary scene in recent years with popular restaurateurs launching new concepts in Arizona. Not to mention the Grand Canyon State is also home to several craft breweries and wineries statewide.  

4. Entertainment
If a break from hitting the links is what you need. You’re in luck. Arizona offers an abundance of activities and events day or night and every day of the week. From farmers markets to the Broadway productions, finding entertainment is no difficult task. 

5. The Great Outdoors
Arizona is more than blowing tumbleweeds and cacti, while it is home to the Sonoran Desert, it’s also home to the largest ponderosa pine forest in the country. For outdoor enthusiasts, Arizona offers miles of hiking and biking trails in the city and beyond, including our very own Superstition Mountain Golf & Country Club, recently named as one of the most beautiful hikes in the world. Additionally, lakes dot the state and offer boating and fishing for those eager to spend the day in the sun, and in winter months Snowbowl and Sunrise ski resorts open their doors for powder days. 

These reasons and many more are what makes Arizona the perfect destination for retirement, or for any chapter of life. For more helpful tips on retirement planning visit our blog: How to Choose a Retirement Location.
