What are the Richest Cities in Florida in 2022?

L. Cane

When you live in a place for a while, you may eventually believe that some areas are better off financially than others. Florida may be no different. Some areas of Florida are arguably more wealthy than others. When you think of the wealthiest places in Florida, you may automatically picture beach towns and cities, but it turns out that, according to one list, Florida's richest town isn't exactly beachfront at all, although parts of it are lake front.

Determining the "Richest" Cities in Florida: The website HomeSnacks wanted to determine which cities were the "richest," so it looked at the Census Bureau's 2016-2020 American Community Survey for metrics like median household income, poverty level, quality of life, cost of living, and the unemployment rate for 221 cities with over 5,000 residents. In this way, "richest" doesn't just mean the most wealthy. Other factors were considered.

Which City Came in First Place?: Lake Mary, which had a median income of $92,441 came in first place. Lake Mary had a median home price of $329,700, an unemployment rate of 2.4%, a poverty level of 4.2%, and a crime rate nearly 46% lower than the national average.

The Rest of the Top 10: Lake Mary took the top spot, but one can have a closer look at the top 10, as follows:

Additional Data: HomeSnacks is one website, but one can look at additional data for more information. The website Most Expensively looked at the wealthiest cities in Florida. Pinecrest came in first. Parkland came in second, and Key Biscayne came in 3rd. However, this list was based entirely on median income and not on other metrics.

Ventured published a similar list, also based on income. Fisher Island came in first, Manalapan came in second, and Golden Beach came in 3rd.
