I would have preferred you said The Villages it the best kept secret.

As The viilages continues to expands so does the surrounding area much of which flows into The villages Public squares, restaurants stores , etc. So the population in this area continues to grow and will be enormous.

One word already lost in describing The villages, "quaint
I opine others can decide

The Villages is great. It may keep growing, but quality growth with room for all. So glad they didn't stop this excellent development 5 years ago. Thank you Morris family for creating and maintaining such a beautiful place for all to live.

Sun City West, Sun City Grand, etc, they already exist and the climate is so much better than Florida.

Could't disagree more. But then, I hate being roasted in a dry desert and others hate being steamed in a humid area. To each their own.

I'm familiar with Sun Cit West as my mother-in-law moved there umpteen years ago. Visiting there was what turned me on to the idea of living in an active retirement community. I just didn't want it to be where the humidity was in the teens and the temperature regularly over 100. The Villages is a dream come true for my wife and I.

It also seems that the last time we visited Sun City West (the MIL moved from there a number of years ago), it was looking kind of run-down with a number of its facilities closing down. With the Morse family's active leadership, The Villages is being kept up and is growing constantly. I guess I prefer their approach to the "build it out and hand it over to the residents" approach of Del Webb.

I much prefer the eastern side of the valley, Tempe, Mesa, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Gilbert and Chandler, especially Scottsdale.

The Phoenix area does get a haboob every now and then. I have experienced two there. haboob in arizona - Google Search

Interesting to see what TV was like back then. I'd been here two years in 2007.
Thanks for the info.
