    Hoping that someone posts to this particular Sun City because, even though I have chosen the Original Sun City in Arizona, I would love to hear more about this community. A co-worker lives here and just loves it.

    Yep me too... I think the word is spreading to the other sun city communities like this one... tell your co worker to tell some friends from here and get on... I would love to hear some also...

    I keep forgetting to tell her. If I was going to stay in the Southeast, I would have probably purchased in this SCCL. Even though it is a beautiful community, it cannot hold a candle to my Original Sun City. Just MHO, lol.

    South Carolina is a nice place and I'd think the Sun City in South Carolina would be an interesting place especially if near the beach.

    No, it is not near the beach, but it's not a far drive to the beach at all.

    Hi, Flo. Hope all is going well with your relocation to Sun City Carolina Lakes.

    As Admin stated, each Sun City has it's own area to post in. If you are on mobile (as I sometimes am) you may not see it. But there are separate areas for each specific Sun City. Hope this helps.
