Paradise Valley, the “Beverly Hills of Arizona”, remains the wealthiest city in Arizona, and one of the wealthiest in the United States. The Town of Paradise Valley “zip code 85253” is an extremely affluent luxury residential community consisting almost exclusively of homes and estates on a minimum of 1 acre lots and larger. Because of very strict zoning, there is almost no commercial allowed except for resorts, country clubs, schools and religious institutions. The Town is approximately 16 square miles and is completely surrounded by Scottsdale and Phoenix.
The high income of Paradise Valley’s residents attracts luxury retail and upscale services to locate nearby. Residents enjoy some of the best shopping in the country, as well as an abundance of art galleries, museums, upscale restaurants and night life, theatre, first-class golf courses, destination spas, spring baseball training of 15 major league baseball teams, Scottsdale Airport for private jets, and the many outstanding medical centers. Because of the fabulous weather, with sunshine 329 days a year, and its mountains and beautiful scenic areas, the area is popular with people who enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, swimming, tennis, jogging, bicycling, horseback riding and walking.
WHEN ONE BUYS A HOME IN PARADISE VALLEY, ONE CAN BECOME A MEMBER OF ANY OF THESE RESORTS . . . like a private club. Enjoy the spa, pools and all the facilities, including a myriad of pilates, yoga and exercise classes!

Early birds are rewarded with cooler temperatures and greatly reduced summer rates at the area’s fine resident and public courses.
Superbly groomed and challenging courses, top instruction, and ideal climate and standard of service second to none have sealed Scottsdale and the surrounding area’s reputation as good as it gets. To get any better, they’d have to invent a whole new game.
