I've lived in the center of this neighborhood for 4 years and love it. It's not really city living, it's suburban. The further east you are, the better it gets. The neighborhoods are safer on the east side and the people are friendly. Many of the homes in my immediate neighborhood have had only one owner so a majority of people have been here for more than 20 years. It's quiet and residential. Temperatures are perhaps 2 or 3 degrees cooler here than in the city. You have multiple resorts nearby in Scottsdale and hiking/biking trails in every direction. I've been in Phoenix since 1985 and until I moved this far north, I didn't realize what I was missing. If you move here, make sure you live near your job. Everyone complains about the heat but they get used to it. Consider the fact that nearly 4.7 million people live in this part of Arizona as testament to how well people adapt. This is Paradise Valley.
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!
