Home to the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign, most of the Las Vegas Strip, and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), Paradise sure looks a lot like Vegas to outsiders, but its short history explains the apparent misnomer. To avoid taxation from the city of Las Vegas, casino executives lobbied the county to establish the area as an unincorporated town, and in 1950 they succeeded. Today, Paradise holds some of the Las Vegas Valley's most popular attractions, and for high rollers, night owls, and anyone with a taste for luxury, the town certainly delivers on the promise of its name.
High energy and fast paced living.
Glamorous and upbeat with shopping and dining galore.
Paradise is definitely not the burbs. This is all about city living.
Paradise is unique as it is own separate town. While throughout most of the valley, short term rentals are not allowed, you will find an abundance of short term rentals here.
Paradise is truly an exciting place to be. There is always something going on. You’re truly in the center of all the Las Vegas magic.
