Paradise Valley is a city in the central/eastern part of the Greater Phoenix area. The following chart represents the distance from Paradise Valley, Arizona to the indicated city, and the time it takes to drive there.

The purpose of this chart is to give an estimation, not an exact time or distance. In order to map each location, we chose a specific point to represent each city. Typically, we chose City Hall, the Chamber of Commerce, airport, or some other official central location.

Time and Distance Are Estimated

Depending on your starting and ending points, your distance may vary. Likewise, these times are estimates. People drive differently and road conditions and restrictions happen. Speed limits vary from 55 mph to 75 mph on highways in this area. 

You'll find that the online mapping services that we used to create these numbers often indicate that you'll get there in roughly 'a mile per minute.' However, this is not often the case. It's a good rule of thumb to leave an hour for every 50 miles, and longer if it is a major event where traffic or parking problems often occur.​

The first set of cities, shown as white in the table, are in Maricopa County. The second set of cities, shown in light gray in the table, are in Pinal County and considered part of the Greater Phoenix area. The third set of cities, shown in darker gray, are major destinations elsewhere in the State of Arizona. The last set of places, in the darkest gray, are common driving destinations outside Arizona.
