I lived in Sun City Center for around 11 years and I really have a wonderful time by the time I was living in Sun City Center. Most of the population are around 60 years or older. With the community for retirees, it’s a very nice community and a very safe neighborhood There is even a neighborhood watch car that goes around at least once a day to ensure that the peace is well maintained.

There are many places for dogs to play and the community is very friendly and family oriented The place consists of single-family dwellings and duplexes.Most of the shopping centers have special parking lots. There are various hobby shops around like art, photography, dancing, woodworking, sewing investments, and even seven golf courses.

for me, the best areas in Sun City Center is Old Castle Tavern restaurant and Bonworth Plaza. About transportation, the traffic is not the best but is not the worst either and there are even bus lines. The job market there is rapidly growing so there are often times many new jobs available for a variety of skill levels. There are like anywhere else good Hotels, Markets, Hospitals, Plazas, and various restaurants.
