The Top 10 Wealthiest American Counties Are Not Where You Expect!

Across the United States, it may surprise you to discover that none of the top 10 wealthiest counties are located in California or Florida.  This seems a bit shocking with the celebrity soaked shores, excesses of LA, South Beach and Miami, and yet according to the good people at Forbes, the top 10 richest counties in America are as follows:

1.    Falls Church City, VA– $113,313 (<—Median household income)
2.    Loudoun County, VA–$112,021
3.    Fairfax County, VA–$104,259
4.    Hunterdon County, NJ–$102,500
5.    Howard County, MD–$101,003
6.    Los Alamos County, NM–$100,423
7.    Douglas County, CO–$99,522
8.    Morris County, NJ–$96,316
9.    Somerset County, NJ–$96,233
10.    Fairfax City County, VA–$96,232
