The Richest Places Index
Bloomberg created the annual Richest Places Index to uncover the most affluent towns in the United States. While some towns are chock full of tech moguls and uber-rich celebs, not every "richest place" on this list has high-profile residents.
These towns all have mega mansions and manicured lawns, of course, but they are more in demand for their gorgeous outdoor spaces and top-rated schools. Many are also close — but not too close — to a bustling downtown scene.
Bloomberg created and ordered this list by annual household income. Every one of the top 20 towns have households that bring in at least $300,000 a year. While Silicon Valley and the New York metro area make up a big chunk of this list, the richest people in America also take up residences in Arizona, Florida, Colorado and Virginia. Here are the 20 towns with the richest people in America.
