Paradise Valley (aka P.V.) is a small, affluent town that isn't far from downtown Scottsdale and know as the wealthiest municipality in Arizona.
P.V. is known for its luxury golf courses, shopping, and restaurant scene. Despite the town's relatively small area and population compared to other municipalities in the Phoenix metropolitan area, P.V. is home to eight full-service resorts, making it one of Arizona's premier tourist destinations. It is also known for expensive real estate.
It should not be confused with Paradise Valley Village, an official municipal designation, in northeast Phoenix. For instance, Paradise Valley Community College, Paradise Valley High School, Paradise Valley Hospital, Paradise Valley Mall, and Paradise Valley Golf Course are all located several miles to the north of the town, in Phoenix.
The town's name along with all the other various entities bearing the same name comes from the expansive area known as Paradise Valley, that spreads from north of the Phoenix Mountains to Cave Creek and Carefree on the north and the McDowell Mountains to the east.
Residents attend schools in the Scottsdale Unified School District. The Paradise Valley Unified School District is one of the largest in the state, though like many other institutions with the name Paradise Valley, it refers to the Phoenix village, and not to the town.
