Sun City Hotels

Perfect your swing on rolling green fairways, hike rocky trails into the distant mountains, or relax on quiet lakeside shores with a crackling BBQ and outstanding views. The beautiful Californian landscape that surrounds the tranquil streets of Sun City provide an escape from the confines of suburban living. Untouched, and natural, the trailing canyon pathways cry out to be explored, and the cool waters of its picturesque lakes glitter invitingly in the afternoon sun.

Things to see

Canyon Lake, just outside the quiet residential estate of Sun City, is a focal point of recreation life in this quiet, retirement district in the Californian foothills. The freshwater lake is edged by pretty beaches, BBQ stations, and boat docks, and attracts swimmers, water skiers, and campers to discover its quiet, and isolated shores. Take a stroll along the flat banks of Heritage Lake Park, with the iron-red slopes of distant hills providing the backdrop, and enjoy a round of golf on the three courses favored by local residents, avoiding palm trees on the fairways as you hit your way to the greens. Sun City Shopping Center is a low rise collection of banks, retail outlets, and popular supermarkets, and the hub of retail life in Sun City. Popular fast food restaurants, chain eateries, and a few independent cafes welcome visitors with familiar menus, and traditional American cuisine. Lake Elsinore lies to the west, a similar community edged around a wide lake. It’s a popular location for watersports, and the calm reservoir is ideal for water skiing.

Hotels in Sun City

The purpose-built retirement community of Sun City edges the Californian outback, surrounded by natural freshwater lakes, and rolling hills. Hotels in Sun City are usually found in outlying towns, away from the quiet residential streets just off Escondido Freeway. Affordable accommodation, and discount hotels, offer the greatest choice, in keeping with the laid back, relaxed feel of the town. Most places to stay are in the Lake Elsinore area, or overlooking the craggy shoreline of Canyon Lake. Traditionally, hotels in Sun City offer air conditioning, a choice or two queen or one double bed, comfortable furnishings, and well-appointed bathrooms.

Where to stay

The quiet, suburban streets of Sun City are tranquil, and lined with mature trees, spacious front yards, and single storey homes befitting this purpose-built retirement community. It doesn’t take long to get out of its confines, finding your way along winding canyon roads to freshwater lakes, and dramatic mountain outcrops. Since favorite pastimes here are golfing on the perfectly manicured greens of the town’s private golf courses, or indulging in a spot of freshwater fishing, you’ll find hotels in Sun City close to the town’s green recreation grounds. A few motels and inns are located close to Canyon Lake, putting you right next to the quiet beaches of this idyllic parkland.

How to get to Sun City

Palm Springs International Airport lies just the other side of Mount San Jacinto State Park, a dramatic craggy mountain region with a winding road bisecting the peaks through a narrow, lush valley. Overland bus services provide intermittent service to Sun City, but it’s not as regular as you might like. A better option would be to hire a car and follow the beautiful trail yourself. While you’re in the town you won’t have much need for a car unless you plan to visit outlying visitor attractions further afield. The small community is easy to discover on foot.
