Las Vegas has a multitude of active-adult communities worth considering, however, none quite like Sun City (SC) Summerlin. This 55+ age-restricted community is known as one of the nation’s top adult communities for a variety of reasons such as its amazing amenities and on-site restaurants/taverns. Located on Las Vegas’ western edge, this community has a total of 7,779 homes. Moreover, within this 55+ neighborhood, you’ll find several activity/recreational hubs (Desert Vista, Pinnacle, Sun Shadows, and Mountain Shadows). Overall, homes for sale here range from $249,500 to $796,000, with a median sale price of approximately $329,900 or $219 per square foot.
Since Sun City Summerlin is a retirement community for active adults, it only makes sense to have a wealth of recreational activities available; hence, SC Summerlin’s 4 clubhouse/community center with varied activities. Take the most prominent community center Desert Vista with its arts and crafts studio, fitness facilities, model builders, billiards room, and a grand ballroom. Likewise, the Pinnacle clubhouse offers woodworking, a music room, a computer lab, theater, walking trails, and a massage room. The remaining two centers (Sun Shadows and Mountain Shadows) offer access to first-rate spas, a running track, plus indoor/outdoor sports. There are also social groups and clubs available.
Yet another SC Summerlin perk is its multiple golf courses—Eagle Crest, Palm Valley, and Highland Falls. Each golf course offers a unique and challenging golf experience. For example, Eagle Crest was designed for golfer on a tight schedule; thus, golfers can complete the 18-hole course (6 par four holes, and 12 par three holes) in under 3 hours. Alternatively, the Palm Valley golf course is more traditional in its layout and includes greens, sand traps and fairways. Whereas, the Highland Falls golf course has a little bit of everything for both the experienced golfer and the novice.
