Sun City was opened January 1, 1960, with five home models, a shopping center, a recreation center, and a golf course. Builders and promoters were shocked that the opening weekend drew 100,000 people, ten times more than expected, and resulted in a Time magazine cover story. Developer Del E. Webb expanded Sun City over the years including Sun City West and Sun City Grand. The area has some great eateries to stop into once you are moved. It is pretty common that our moving clients will grab a quick bite the first night in their new home once they are settled so take a look at some of our favorite spots:
- Bennys Burgers & BBQ
- Moms Fixins
- Revolu Modern Taqueira Bar
