Las Vegas, Nevada Homes for Sale

About Paradise

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.

Around Paradise

Big spenders seeking luxurious condominiums near the heart of the city should look on the north end of Paradise near the Strip. Multimillion-dollar homes in this area are highly coveted due to their cutting-edge design, opulent comforts, and incredible locations. The south end of town feels more like a suburb, offering a setting that's more ideal for families, retirees, or anyone seeking a quiet base just a short drive away from the action. While more affordable condos can be found here, this area is also not short on luxury options, with plenty of grand single-family homes that won't fail to impress.

The Strip offers a huge variety of both fine dining and casual restaurants. An array of high-end eateries at The Cosmopolitan, The Palazzo, Aria, and Mandalay Bay serve sumptuous meals you won't forget. Celebrity chefs like Bobby Flay, Giada De Laurentiis, Guy Fieri, and Gordon Ramsay all have popular restaurants in the area. Paradise Boulevard also offers a great selection of cuisines, whether you want German food, Mexican, sushi, or tapas. Maryland Boulevard, where UNLV is located, is an excellent place to find fast food, quick eats, and dine-in options.

On the Strip, you never know what you'll find. Bright lights, colorful characters, gorgeous architecture, and world-famous entertainment are the hallmarks of this part of town. UNLV gives the center of Paradise a college town feel, with plazas, strip malls, consignment stores, comic book stores, and beauty supply stores catering to a culture of youth. Further south, the atmosphere is more mature, exemplified in a suburban layout of single-family homes.

Head to the Strip to see a concert at House of Blues, Brooklyn Bowl, MGM Grand Arena, and Park Theater. Catch a Golden Knights hockey game at T-Mobile Arena or an Aces WNBA game at a Mandalay Bay Events Center. Of course, there's also plenty of nightclubs to choose from, including Drai's, XS, or 1Oak. Elsewhere in Paradise, college bars, dive bars, gaming bars, and lounges abound. Locals and tourists alike frequent Ellis Island, an iconic hotel and casino. Many service industry professionals make Ellis Island their first stop after work for food, cheap drinks, and karaoke. Down Paradise Road, just before McCarran Airport at Naples Drive, a cluster of LGBT-friendly establishments like Gipsy, FreeZone, and Piranha host drag shows, theme nights, and gaming.

Enjoy a low-key Sunday with a visit to the National Atomic Testing Museum or the Pinball Hall of Fame. Check out the Thomas and Mack Center's schedule as well to plan a weekend watching the NBA Summer League or Harlem Globetrotters. Of course, the Strip is always an option for a day of shopping at CityCenter, Fashion Show, or The Grand Canal Shoppes.
