“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
Ritzy Paradise Valley is home to world-class resorts tucked along Camelback Mountain between Phoenix and Scottsdale. There is no commercial or business district in Paradise Valley, but there is a reason that the median home price is over $1 million: this is one of the most scenic towns in Arizona. All-inclusive resorts offer golf, tennis, fine dining, and swimming pools with valley views. Food Network fans may recognize Beau MacMillan, the star chef of Elements at Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain. Historic Camelback Inn is located at the base of Mummy Mountain, with bungalows that make it feel more like an exclusive community than a hotel. Paradise Valley is a quiet town at night, but for those looking for shopping or nightlife, Scottsdale is only a ten-minute drive away.
