Paradise Valley is right in between Phoenix and Scottsdale. It is more affordable than Scottsdale, yet is close enough to enjoy all the amenities that Scottsdale has to offer, such as great shopping, dining, and nightlife. Paradise Valley is a 20 minute drive to the college town of Tempe and about a two hour drive up north to Flagstaff to see the snow!
Paradise Valley is a great family community. It is extremely safe because it is solely residential. There are great private schools in the area while the public schools are fine, better around Scottsdale. My children have loved living in PV and I believe it is the best space to raise a family in the Phoenix area.
