  1. Tucson - When looking for a retirement home in Arizona, Tucson is not only one of the fastest growing retirement communities in the United States, but is also normally ranked high by sites like Forbes for retirees. The weather is warm there, with sunshine for almost 300 days each year. There are more than 25 adult retirement communities, a mobile home park, and low-cost housing. It is bicycle friendly and has a public bus system. Add in the Saguaro National Park, and Tucson offers a lot for those seeking retirement in Arizona.
  2. Mesa - Another Arizona city that ranks highly on Forbes list for retirees is Mesa. It is a fast growing suburb of Phoenix and, while it is a college town, it also has a large number of active adult communities. While the town is a suburban area, there is also a lot of outdoor recreation for the retirees. This is also where the Chicago Cubs hold their spring training, so baseball fans will find a lot to love about the springs in Mesa. Mesa is not as easily walkable as other retirement spots in Arizona, but this is a nice spot for more active retirees.
  3. PebbleCreek - For those retirees who love to golf, there isn't a better place to retire than the PebbleCreek retirement community in Goodyear. This includes two sections. Eagle's Nest has a gate-guarded entrance with an 18-hole golf course, pools, spas, tennis courts, and more. The second section is Tuscany Falls, which has a 27-hole golf course, both indoor and outdoor pools, spas, tennis courts, and more.

  5. Scottsdale - WalletHub named Scottsdale as the fifth best place to retire in the United States in 2014. That was the highest ranking for any city in Arizona when it comes to retiring based on jobs, activities, affordability, health care, and quality of life. The only downfall was the affordability part, which was ranked 100th among comparable cities. However, the biggest draw was the quality of life. This includes hiking trails, golf courses, recreation activities, and more.
  6. Sun City West - For people who are looking at retirement in Arizona, but want to find an actual retirement community to move into, the Sun City West community offers just about anything a retiree could desire. This is an age-restricted community, allowing only those 55 and older. It includes available medical care, fitness centers, tennis, swimming, golf courses, a bowling alley, a library, three grocery stores, and much more.
