Paradise is a census-designated place part of Las Vegas Township in Clark County, Nevada, United States. The population was 223,167 at the 2010 census. As an unincorporated town, it is governed by the Clark County Commission with input from the Paradise Town Advisory Board. Paradise was formed on December 8, 1950.

Paradise contains McCarran International Airport, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and most of the Las Vegas Strip. Many tourists visiting the Las Vegas area are actually spending most of their time in Paradise rather than in the City of Las Vegas. However, downtown is in Las Vegas. Despite this, Paradise remains relatively unknown since the unincorporated Paradise, NV does not appear in postal addresses. All Paradise ZIP codes have been assigned Las Vegas mailing addresses by the United States Postal Service. At about 225,000 people, if Paradise were to be an incorporated city it would be either the fourth or fifth largest city in the state, after Las Vegas (585,000), Henderson (260,000), and North Las Vegas (229,000); Reno has a population of about 225,000. Paradise is the most populous CDP in the United States, except for Honolulu which is not separately incorporated from its county government, and officially recognized as a CDP and CCD by the Census Bureau.
