Wealth in Florida is found along its coasts, particularly its southern coast. A study by SmartAsset came up with a Wealth Index for each county nationwide, looking at investments, income and housing value. Most of the top 10 wealthiest counties in Florida are on the state’s east coast.
But Monroe County (aka the Florida Keys) ranked the wealthiest, and not far behind was Collier County in second place. Lee County was 12th in the state.
Nationwide, Monroe County is the 10th wealthiest, with Collier coming in at 14th. The richest: Teton County, Wyoming, home of Jackson Hole, followed by Manhattan’s New York County.
