Sun City Shadow Hills, Indio CA

Aloha Everyone,

Our friends from Schenectady, NY spend the winter months in Sun City Shadow Hills, Indio, CA. Indio is Indian in Spanish. Location is 127 miles east of Los Angeles alongside I-10. Based on the 2010 US census, the population is 76,036, an increase of 55% from the previous decade.

Sun City Shadow Hills is an active 55+ adult community. Completed in three phases, there are a total of 3,000 homes.Retirees who relocate here, either permanently or part-time, give warm winter weather as a reason. On the flip side the summer dry heat can be uncomfortable requiring one to stay in their air conditioned homes.

I love the clubhouses.  I can see myself working out in a fitness center, using the aerobics and dance studio, arts and crafts room and library!  Yoga classes are also offered.

But it’s not our time to settle down. Even with potential wonderful neighbors like Vita and Len and Mimi, a charming lady who lives across the street from them,  the two of us are not yet ready. We continue to enjoy our traveling lifestyle.

Rick Steve’s mantra is, “Keep On traveling.”

Aloha -- Cathi
