About Paradise Valley AZ
Paradise Valley is named for its gorgeous landscape and abundance of spring wildflowers. An affluent suburb of the Phoenix metro area, Paradise Valley is 13 miles northeast of downtown Phoenix and just four miles west of downtown Scottsdale.
Home to approximately 13,000 residents, the town consists primarily of large residential properties, sprawling resorts and a few local businesses. Residents appreciate their exclusive lifestyle as the town's zoning restrictions discourage large businesses. The community is known for its fine dining, tennis facilities and golf courses.
Thanks to Paradise Valley's proximity to Scottsdale and Phoenix, residents and visitors can enjoy a wide range of cultural and entertainment activities. Scottsdale in particular is a premier travel destination, offering exclusive spas, a thriving arts district and nightlife as counterpoint to its origins as a western resort community.
The Paradise Valley Scenic Drive and Camelback Mountain offer amazing views of the city. One of the area's better-known hikes is Echo Canyon, with its signature rock formation, "The Praying Monk."
