Overview of Paradise Valley
Renting an apartment in Paradise Valley, NV, has you living conveniently close to the University of Nevada Las Vegas, all the attractions of The Strip and McCarran International Airport.
Paradise got its start in the 1950s when the City of Las Vegas began efforts to annex the Las Vegas Strip, home the area’s major money makers - the casinos and hotels. The business owners objected and lobbied for a law that prevented the annexation of an unincorporated town. The township was formed in 1953. Today, most visitors to “Sin City” don’t realize that a large portion of the Las Vegas Strip is actually located in Paradise. In fact, everything along The Strip south of Sahara is in Paradise.
Like its nearby neighbor, Winchester, the name Paradise doesn’t appear in any postal addresses. The U.S. Postal Service has given all Paradise addresses a Las Vegas zip code.
Paradise is part of South-Southwest Las Vegas and is close to other popular Las Vegas neighborhoods, including Winchester, Enterprise and Whitney.
