As for Arizona, there are a few more options. This link will show you all of the <a href="http://www.55places.com/arizona">active adult communities in Arizona</a>. Most are 55+ but some of the ones listed below have a lower age requirement (either 40 or 45):
Sun City Grand - Sun City West, AZ
Sun City Festival - Buckeye, AZ
SaddleBrooke Ranch - Tucson, AZ
SaddleBrooke - Tucson, AZ
Westbrook Village - Peoria, AZ
Leisure World - Mesa, AZ
Sun City Vistoso - Tucson, AZ
I hope that helps! Also, keep in mind that a lot of builders will allow people 45 or 50 to purchase in a "55+" community but often once the developer is gone, the restriction goes back up to 55. It's complicated, I know, but it has a lot to do with the Housing for Older Persons Act of 1995. Long story short, 20% of residents in a 55+ age-restricted community *can* be younger than 55. But that doesn't mean every 55+ community will allow that.
Good luck in your search!

Like the other areas of the market, the active adult segment is seeing price reductions. Affordability is at an all time high. It's really a matter of finding the right fit for your lifestyle.
There are links to many of these communities on my website.
Golf? Garden? Knit? Wood work? or Drink all day and play bridge?
What size home do you want? Will you be a snowbird? How close to your neighbors do you want to be?
Do you drive or will you be relying on public transportation?
Some adult communities cost upward of $400 per month HOA. What type of budget will you be on?
