Banning, California sits near the top of San Gorgino Pass at an elevation of 2,500 feet in south central California. It is about 30 miles west of Palm Springs and 80 miles east of Los Angeles and is the site of Sun Lakes Country Club, a gated, 55+ community comprised of 3,300 condos, town homes and single family homes. Platted by Presley Company in 1987, Sun Lakes was completed by Pulte Homes in 2003.
The community is clustered around the gently rolling acres of two golf courses, and neighborhoods offer views of fairways and putting greens. Non-golf green spaces are lushly landscpaped with blooming bushes, palm trees and flower beds. The nearby San Bernardino Mountains loom in the distance.
Although there are some two-story residences, most homes are single story. The architecture is Mediterranean, with light colored exteriors and clay tile roofs. Homes sit close to one another and have a two to three car garage with a very short driveway. Living space sizes range from 850 square feet to 2,627 square feet with two to four bedrooms and two to three baths.
Prices start in the mid- to high-$200,000s. The HOA fee is in the $300s to $400s per month. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they may change.
Sun Lakes has three large clubhouses. The Main Club, open to residents and their guests, has two restaurants, a fitness center, library, grand ballroom, and a seasonal veranda. A comedy night and an ABBA tribute are among the ballroom's recent events. The two other clubhouses have indoor/outdoor pools, and walking and biking trails are scattered throughout the community.
Residents may participate in over 70 groups, ranging from a drama club to language clubs and sport clubs. Excurions include trips to Nixon's library, the Pantage's Theater, and the Pechanga Casino. Residents can also explore the nearby Morongo Casino Resort as well as the trails of the Big Morongo Canyon Preserve. Los Angeles and Palm Springs are both easily accessible via Interstate 10.
Banning's San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission.

California is the most populous state in the United States, and it is the sixth largest economy in the world.
Because it is so long, the climate varies greatly. Everything from deserts, forests and snow covered mountains to the world famous moderate temperatures of Southern California are here. Record temperatures have included a low of minus 35 degrees and a high of 134 degrees.
Missions placed within a day's walk from one another dot the length of the state and started appearing in 1769. Juan Cabrillo first sighted California in 1542 and inspired the missions. A few of the most famous ones are San Juan Capistrano (the swallows return every year at the same time), and San Diego (the first one).
A few of California's natural resources include petroleum, timber and natural gas. Industries are manufacturing (machinery, transportation equipment, electronics), aerospace and defense, biotechnology, and tourism. Of course, Hollywood and Disneyland are known around the world. Other famous attractions are Yosemite National Park, the Golden Gate Bridge (San Francisco), Point Reyes National Seashore, Sequoia National Park and San Simeon State Park (Hearst Castle).
The lowest point in the U.S. is California's Death Valley at 282 feet below sea level, and the highest point in the Lower 48 is its Mt. Whitney at 14,491 feet above sea level. Outside of Hawaii and Alaska, the state's Lassen Peak is one of the two active volcanoes in the U.S. It last erupted in 1917.
More immigrants settle down in California than in any other state.
Are 55+ Communities Really "Retirement" Communities?
Many people who live in age-restricted communities (usually for people age 55+) are still gainfully employed. So why would they live in what is considered a "retirement" community? Why not continue to live in a standard neighborhood? People still employed choose age-restricted communities for the same reasons as people who are retired do: the safety, amenities and sense of community that one can provide. And whether employed or not, once the kids are grown, it is sometimes nice to live in a neighborhood where small children do not congregate.
