'There's some kind of complex people living here seem to have. Everyone forwards their mail to a Las Vegas address. What's wrong with a Paradise PO?'
A sad, but in a way very true, fact was thus stated by comedian Seth Rogan on Saturday Night Live, while discussing the state of being that Paradise, Nevada is often thrown in, despite being probably the best known part of the land in terms of tourism in America.
That prompts us to answer the most fundamental of questions that attentive readers are likely to come up with, What is this Paradise? Where is it, exactly?
Well, to put it very simply in a bid to dispel all the clouds and fog of confusion, Paradise, Nevada is an unincorporated community that is most widely known as the Las Vegas Strip.
Makes sense, now? Sure, it does!
So, what millions of tourists know of as Las Vegas Strip is actually a community that is officially known as Paradise, Nevada. So, a trip to Las Vegas would probably be reduced to a trip to Paradise, if you are ready to suck all the sense of thrill from it, that is.
Mockery aside, Paradise is a beautiful place to spend your well-earned holidays. Filled to the bursting point with casinos, grand hotel buildings, world-class restaurants and shopping centers, it is one place where you can find most pleasurable things in life that money can buy you.

Finding Hotels Near Airport in Paradise
Paradise, administratively regulated under the Clark County Nevada is the actual host of the Las Vegas Valley Int. Airport (now known as 'McCarran International Airport').
The airport is located at a short distance of 2-4 miles from the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise. The trip from the airport to the city won't take you longer than 5 minutes, and hence, it does not stand at all to reason to invest your precious time to look for cheap hotels (any hotel whatsoever, to be blunt) near the airport. The best strategy for tourists in such a situation is to drive straight downtown into Paradise and find a suitable hotel. In any case, you will always be just a 5-minute drive away from the airport!
Things to Keep in Mind When in Paradise

From imposingly tall hotel buildings to casino floors that occupy thousands of square feet of land, everything in Paradise is grand, majestic and in a way, intimidating.
Hence, when you are in Paradise, you need to keep reminding yourself to not get swayed or bogged down by this imposing nature of the city. Keeping yourself on your toes will never hurt, though!
Most Suitable Time to Visit Paradise
Paradise, on account of being located in the middle of the Nevada Desert, is a perpetually parched city. There is severe dearth of natural rainfall, turning the weather in these parts extremely dry and hot.
The situation gets even worse in summer when temperatures soar high and mighty, bringing the tourism business a touch below the par. These months, however, are marked by falling room tariffs as Paradise hotels try to cope with the curtailed flow of tourists.
Winter brings more agreeable weather and less agreeable hotel prices.
