Paradise Valley is a long time favorite destination that’s known worldwide for its posh resorts, sophisticated shopping and dining and some of the best urban hiking you’ll find anywhere.
According to local officials, the town name was chosen due to the abundance of spring wildflowers and Palo Verde trees.
Hiking Camelback Mountain is a must do on any outdoor enthusiast’s travel itinerary. The mountain’s two summit trails, Echo Canyon and Cholla, are strenuous but reward your efforts with unparalleled panoramic views of the Valley of the Sun.
If you’d rather experience Camelback Mountain from a more low key perspective, enjoy Sunday brunch on the sun drenched patio at El Chorro. Don’t miss their famous sticky buns!
When it comes to accommodations, Paradise Valley offers unsurpassed luxury at a variety of renowned properties including, Omni Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Montelucia, Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa, JW Marriott Camelback Inn Resort and Spa, Montelucia Resort and Spa, The Hermosa Inn and The Scottsdale Plaza Resort.
