The drive into the park and up to Paradise from the Nisqually entrance is great, and provides many opportunities to stop and enjoy great views, such as Christina and Narada falls, Ricksecker point and Paradise river.

Skyline Trail is an amazing but strenuous 5.5 mile (8.9k) loop trail that gains 1,700 feet (518m) as it loops trough Paradise Park and Paradise Valley above the Jackson Memorial Visitor Center at Paradise.

You can view Christine Falls from the main road to Paradise, but it's better to jump on the Van Trump Park Trail and see it from the overlook bridge.
One of several falls on the spectacular way to the Paradise Inn in the Mt Rainier National Park.

Amazing view from the fire lookout, especially towards the mountain and the opposite direction with endless nature and mountains.
This for me is the reason to visit the Sunrise side of the park.
