Recreation Centers of Sun City officials are bringing their facility tours into the 21st century.
While the Sun City Visitors Center was a private entity, the board of directors approved the purchase of a bus to provide community visitors, prospective homeowners and new residents a chance to see the facilities up close and personal. The bus stops at various facilities and the tour guide and driver provide information on each facility visited.
However, due to time limitations the bus tour does not stop at every recreation center or golf course. So RCSC officials are developing a virtual tour of the facilities.
“We continue to provide tours out of the Visitors Center at Bell while providing both existing and prospective Sun City residents with a wealth of information,” Joelynn Higgins, RCSC communications and marketing coordinator, stated in an email.
The new virtual tour that is still under development. She said completion is expected later this spring.
“The virtual tour will provide a much more encompassing tour in less time and will also be accessible from the (RCSC website) www.suncityaz.org, allowing those to truly ‘Experience Sun City AZ’ no matter where they are,” Ms. Higgins stated.
The virtual tour is intended to replace the bus tour as it will be more thorough, covering all of RCSC facilities and many facets of the Sun City lifestyle, Ms. Higgins explained.
