No surprise that Sun City Merrill Ranch is one of the best places to retire
For many people, going green is more than occasionally refusing to run the air conditioning. Being eco-friendly often permeates every aspect of life and residents at Sun City Anthem at Merrill Ranch know exactly what that's like. Each home is outfitted with solar panels so it may be no surprise that it is considered to be one of the best places to retire - especially for the eco-conscious.
Though it has a number of luxurious amenities, the fact that the community is located in beautiful Florence, Arizona, certainly does not hurt its appeal either. The welcoming town is one of the oldest in Pinal County and is a history buffs dream as it has 25 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.
The eco-conscious features in the homes at Merrill Ranch are nothing to bat an eye at. Along with the solar panels, each house was constructed using low-VOC paint and recycled materials.
Of course, the community is much more than just an ideal spot for people looking to go green. It is also perfect for active retirees thanks to pickleball, bocce and tennis courts as well as a state-of-the-art fitness center.
