Sun City Center history:

From the very beginning, 1961 by Del Webb, Sun City Center was destined to be Florida's Premier Retirement Town. One resident in the household must be 55 years of age with no one under the age of 18 years residing for more than 30 days each year, unless granted an exception as per the Federal Housing laws. All pets must be restrained and clothes lines, fences and antennas are not permitted in most areas.

Conveniently located on Florida's West Coast between Tampa and Sarasota, Sun City Center is mere minutes from Florida's best beaches along the Gulf of Mexico. Sun City Center has been professionally planned and developed to provide a variety of housing to accommodate the retirement lifestyle. Couple this with a year 'round list of activities and you've got an unbeatable combination.

Now home to more than 16,000 residents, Sun City Center has maintained a constant growth, year after year, with homeowners coming from all parts of the United States and abroad. Newcomers are frequently confused by the relationship between Sun City Center (single family and duplex villa homes), Kings Point (condominium villas), Lake Towers (assisted care living and nursing home facilities), The Courtyards and Aston Gardens (independent living rental facilities), and Freedom Plaza (assisted care living and nursing home facilities). Each shares a common post office, shopping centers, medical facilities, banks, and churches.
