3 Best Reasons to Choose Senior Living in Phoenix


It’s almost time to start thinking about retirement! You’ve been looking forward to this for a long time, and you’re starting your research on what you want your new life to look like, once you’re done with the usual nine-to-five schedule. Maybe you’re looking forward to figuring it out as you go. Or maybe you want to have a plan in place first. Do you want to move to a new location or stay where you are? Are you looking forward to experiencing a new climate or sticking where you know the landscape?

If you’re not sure, why not consider Phoenix, Arizona? Phoenix has a long history of having something for everyone. It is the fifth-largest city in the US and the country’s fastest-growing city three years in a row. Here are three benefits of senior living in Phoenix.

Lower Cost of Living

If you want to make sure your dollar goes as far as it can, Phoenix is a good place to do it. You won’t need to spend a fortune to live comfortably here. Phoenix scores significantly lower compared to the average cost of living in a US city. You can save a few dollars and stretch what you have a bit further when you move here. Plus, there are plenty of activities that don’t require spending money—even going on a hike or walking around town is lots of fun, with window shopping (or real shopping) to do and interesting things to see everywhere.

Fascinating and Exciting Lifestyle.

There’s always something to do in our fair city. Have you enjoyed a big Cinco de Mayo party where you live now? Imagine it 10 times bigger in Phoenix! And there are many other festivals and festivities year-round to keep you hopping. The arts culture is varied and strong in Phoenix, so you can expect concerts, art shows, food fairs, and more. Enjoy the nightlife with live music of all varieties. Love coffee? So do we! You’ll be able to find a café that’s to your liking—posh café, hipster nook, drive-thru, and everything in-between.

Enjoy the Outdoors.

With an average of over 300 days of sunshine a year, it would be criminal not to go out and enjoy it. Located in the Sonoran Desert, Phoenix is surrounded by mountains: McDowell Mountains, White Tank Mountains, Superstition Mountains, and Sierra Estrella. The Salt River runs right through town as well. If getting outside is to your liking, you can go biking, hiking, climbing, river rafting, and even hot air ballooning.
