Going a little nuts after six months of social distancing? Resort Developer Del Webb has an idea for a socially distanced getaway that could not only improve your outlook this fall, but give you a whole new way of looking at life after the Coronavirus retreats.

For $130, Del Webb will put you up for two nights at Eureka Casino Resort in Mesquite, Nevada—a golf/sports haven that’s wrapped by the canyon country north of Las Vegas. You’ll tour Sun City Mesquite, an age 50-plus community with four new model homes to show; along with a lifestyle that’s been very successful in attracting Coloradans to sell the house here and move west.

“COVID hasn’t dampened business here at all,” says Del Webb’s Annette Forgie, who will be one of the team arranging your visit.

Like many other resort communities, the virus crisis is having the unintended consequence of making people think about where they want to be as the virus fades. Forgie says average Denver home prices, which have climbed into the low $600,000s as the summer ends, are giving one more incentive to consider a move now; along with hugely attractive interest rates.

Mesquite is no desert backwater.  The town has seven golf courses, and a very active senior sports scene including softball, and off-road vehicle clubs focused on scenic trails leading into the national parks nearby.

Del Webb’s community, set beside 7,200-yard Conestoga Golf Club, has been built around a very active social calendar that makes for quick friendships, including with numbers of Colorado expatriates who have already made this move.

You’ll see four newly introduced Del Webb single-family ranch models, such as a ‘Canyon’ model, two bedrooms/two baths plus a 2-car garage, just under 1,300 sq. feet, priced from just $234,990—less than half of the median Denver area home now.  Also, a wide-open Bellwood ranch with a big covered patio, over 1,860 feet, from only $315,990.

You’ll also find a handful of homes ready for quick delivery, including a Pursuit ranch, over 2,000 feet.  If you’re still more comfortable doing an exploration of Mesquite remotely, Del Webb has video and virtual tours available via the web site.

But if you’re coming out the 660-mile ten-hour drive to see for yourself, you’ll find lots of safety precautions in place, both in Sun City and at the casino.  You’ll hear about the great golf and the amenities including clubs, pools, fitness facilities and classes, but you won’t be able to tour those until this is over.

Sun City Mesquite is just off I-15 at Falcon Ridge Parkway.  To line up a weekend for your Explore Del Webb Special, call Del Webb at 702-345-4187, or visit SunCityMesquite.com.
