The Sun City Center Area comprises a very large part of Hillsborough County in which there are more than 20,000 private homes and some 14 facilities providing a multitude of senior living options. Located between Tampa and Sarasota along the Interstate 75 corridor, beautiful land and friendly people are two of our most important natural resources. Sun City Center and the surrounding Southshore communities offer everything today’s active retirement residents and business people alike need to prosper. Lots of shimmering water, a receptive business climate and prime land for future growth and development create an enticing environment.


Top-rated and highly respected physicians and dentists, practicing virtually every specialty, are here. All types of legal and financial expertise are available here from well-qualified professionals. Many of these, as well as representatives of 165 business categories, are members of our Chamber.

Our area is not a retirement community. Residents here are too busy to retire. Fine golf courses abound, plus residents participate in physical activities from aerobics to Zen Yoga, tennis to softball, lawn bowling to pickleball. We have over 200 clubs and organizations utilized on almost a full-time basis.

I am immensely proud of our 500-plus vital and community-involved Chamber members. Their dedication to the Sun City Center Area Chamber of Commerce has made possible very successful annual events: the Spring Trade Show, the spectacular Fall Business Expo and our annual Chamber Cup Classic Golf Tournament, to name just a few. In addition, the Chamber facility houses a 3,800-square-foot banquet room, which accommodates up to 210 persons and bustles with weekly seminars and presentations. The Chamber also offers a Board Room for smaller venues and a Satellite Office perhaps just to organize a hectic day. All programs presented at the Chamber are open to the public, providing continuing education opportunities.

Our members come from many locales in Hillsborough and surrounding counties. I salute them, and I cordially invite other businesses to join with us in our dedicated mission to maintain the Sun City Center area’s vitality and growth in the years to come.
