In a recent story by Stacker called “100 Best Places to Retire in the United States”, Fountain Hills appeared at #20 on the list.
The article listed some of the great features of our community:
- Great spot for nature- and art-loving retirees
- A community chorus
- Large public art collection
- Designated International Dark Sky Community with astronomy club, star parties, and telescope lending program at the library
- Near the Spring Training location for MLV Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks
Fountain Hills appeals to retirees who want an active lifestyle in a community that still has a wide range age demographic. There are nine fitness facilities that offer a variety of workout styles. The Community Garden offers the therapeutic benefits of gardening while meeting other gardening enthusiasts in the community.
The Fountain Hills Senior Activity Center has enough clubs and events happening to keep your calendar full, giving you great ways to expand your knowledge, get active, and give back to the community.
For those who enjoy outdoor sports and recreation, Fountain Hills is the hub for hiking, biking, horseback riding, bird watching, and water recreation. There is also an active Pickleball Club and a Senior Softball Team.
For those who want to think about long-term care, there are two tremendous options for independent and assisted living facilities: Fountain View Village and MorningStar.
