This website was established on November 30, 2006. A fierce winter storm was racing across the country. Ice had paralyzed Kansas City and it was snowing in St. Louis. 500 flights were canceled at Chicago's O'Hare airport. Phoenix and Las Vegas were shivering with temperatures in the low 50s. In Kings Point, residents were playing golf in 84 degree sunshine. If you want to escape the winter blues, this is a great place for it.

What about hurricanes? 2004 was a very bad year for Florida. Four major storms struck the state. The damage claims created an insurance crisis that has yet to be resolved. Fortunately, the Tampa area escaped all of those storms. If such a storm would strike this area, it would be very bad as the wind damage would be great. That hasn't happened here in a long, long time. There is no guarantee that it will not happen again, but Sun City Center is located far enough inland to be sheltered from a storm surge, yet you are only a short drive from some of the best beaches in the country.

Many residents start out as snowbirds but eventually stay here full-time. While summers are humid, the temperature rarely reaches above the mid 90s. Many golf groups compensate for the change in weather by playing early in the summer and mid-day in the winter. In the winter, temperatures can dip close to freezing but it always warms up during the day. Winters tend to be dry, so you can play golf almost every day. Our current weather is displayed below.
