On Monday the 24th we drove 98 miles from Cottonwood to Sun City and the Paradise RV Resort. Sun City is in the NW area of Phoenix. This park is a member resort of the Encore system of which Thousand Trails is also a partner. We are going to be here for 5 weeks and were given a "member" rate for our stay of over 30 days.
The drive was nice and easy and certainly fast enough. when we arrived at the entrance gate we were more than just alittle pleasantly surprised. A VERY, VERY nice place this is. The saying here when you meet someone for the first time to you is "Welcome to Paradise!" Indeed, the facilities are first class and rate amongst THE BEST at which we've stayed. This is not an "RV Park" as such it's a Snow Bird Park Model resort. There are very few RV's here. Most of the residents here have purchased a park model trailer and come here for 4 to 8 months at a time. There are some permanent residents. All lease their space on a per year basis. It would be a nice place retire when one leaves the road and no longer wants to travel.
