My husband and I love where we live in Paradise Valley. Great schools , community, very family friendly. If you are looking for more of a party scene you should look else where. Uber rides can be taken central location not much to walk to aside from restaurants around PV Mall.

Beautiful city that is so close to the mountains. Very close to posh neighborhoods and shopping. Schools are not the best here, but there are great schools in Scottsdale which kids can enroll in.
Paradise Valley has been called my home for the past 5 years, and it has easily been my favorite neighborhood. There is tons of malls and eateries. If I had to change anything, it would be to incorporate more indoor malls instead of housing.
