TripSavvy's editorial guidelines Updated on 06/26/19 Share Pin Email Matt Mawson / Getty Images Sun City is a community in the northwest part of the Greater Phoenix area, in the West Valley. The following chart represents the distance from Sun City, Arizona to the indicated city, and the time it takes to drive there. The purpose of this chart is to give an estimation, not an exact time or distance. You may be starting or ending at some other point, so please keep that in mind. Likewise, as far as the times from one point to another are concerned, people drive differently, during different times of the day and week, and slow road conditions and restrictions happen. Arizona speed limits vary from 55 mph to 75 mph on highways. During rush hour, the drive from Phoenix to Sun City can be frustrating, with very slow traffic. Of course, at rush hour you will be driving west into the blazing sun on many days. In the chart below, there are four sections. Within each section, cities are listed alphabetically. Avondale to Wickenburg are in Maricopa County, so they are in the first section. Apache Junction to Superior are in Pinal County and are considered part of the Greater Phoenix area, which is the second section. The third set of cities, Bullhead City to Yuma, are major destinations elsewhere in the State of Arizona. The last set of places, Disneyland to San Diego, are common driving destinations outside Arizona. Travel Times and Distances From Sun City, Arizona From Sun City, Arizona to ...
