1. Mountain Brook, Alabama

Mountian Brook is part of the Birmingham metropolitan area, just southeast of downtown. With a median household income of $129,777, the area is solidly upper middle class and the home of the first "office park" in the country, a novel concept in 1955 when it was built.

2. Sunrise, Alaska

At the turn of the 20th Century, Sunrise was briefly the most populous community of the Alaska Territory thanks to the gold rush at the time. Now, however, the population is only 53. Though unlikely, we like to think the median household income of $170,263 is in gold.

3. Paradise Valley, Arizona

The small, affluent town of Paradise Valley is sandwiched in between Phoenix and Scottsdale. With a median household income of $173,487, it seems most residents spend their time at one of the eight full-service resorts within the community getting spa treatments or playing golf.

Lying at the midway point between San Francisco and San Jose, the city is one of the wealthiest in the entire country (not just the state!) with a median household income of $250,001. The US Census Bureau doesn't spend time calculating exact numbers higher than that amount.

Weston may be a town in Connecticut, but the Connecticut Economic Resource Center estimates that a full one-fifth of the town commutes to and works in New York City.

8. Henlopen Acres, Delaware

Henlopen Acres only has about 138 residents, but, as part of the Rehoboth Beach area, the community swells in the summer months thanks to its Atlantic Beach location. In fact, only about a third of Henlopen Acres homes are lived in year-round. The area's location probably increases home values which might have something to do with the median household income being $158,750.

9. Jupiter Island, Florida

About 45 minutes north of West Palm Beach, Jupiter Island occupies a skinny strip of barrier island on Florida's Atlantic Coast. It seems to be a golfer's paradise, with homeowners including Tiger Woods, Greg Norman, and Rickie Fowler. Maybe that's why the median household income is $248,750.

Idaho was the fastest-growing state in 2017. Eagle has helped that trend by growing 24.5% since 2010. It's suburban location only 30 minutes from downtown Boise is key to its appeal. The median household income here is $82,577.

Northwest of downtown Louisville, Glenview is just outside of the I-264 circle. With a median age of 53.6, it's well on its way to becoming a Boomer retirement community. It makes sense, then, that its median household income is $223,438.

20. Chevy Chase Village, Maryland

Chevy Chase Village is technically a part of the D.C. metro area, but the municipality lines are technically on the Maryland side of the D.C.-Maryland border. If it isn't the wealthiest community in the country, it's definitely rivaling for the top spot.
