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. Obviously, I had to pick one point in each location in order to map it. Typically, I chose the City Hall, Chamber of Commerce, airport or some other official central place.

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. Speed limits vary from 55 mph to 75 mph on highways here. During rush hour, the drive from Phoenix to Sun City can be a frustrating one, with very slow moving traffic. Of course, at rush hour you will be driving west into the blazing sun on many days.

The times are just estimates. You'll find that the online mapping services that I used to create these numbers often indicate that you'll get there in roughly 'a mile per minute'. I don't usually find that to be true. If I am driving a combination of highways and city streets, I usually leave an hour for every 50 miles, and longer if it is a major event where I expect traffic or parking problems.

The first set of cities, shown as white in the table, are in Maricopa County. The second set of cities, shown in light gray in the table, are in Pinal County and are considered part of the Greater Phoenix area. The third set of cities, shown in darker gray, are major destinations elsewhere in the State of Arizona.

The last set of places, in the darkest gray, are common driving destinations outside Arizona.
