3 of Top 10 Wealthiest Counties Are In Northern VA

The nation’s wealthiest counties are all suburban retreats outside of large cities, according to an analysis by Forbes magazine.

The data comes from the U.S. Census Bureau, which examines the average incomes in 1,889 counties.

Of the top 25, 19 of these counties are on the East Coast – just outside of New York City, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore. Williamson County, outside of Nashville, Tenn., and Forsyth County, outside of Atlanta, are the only Southern counties on the top-25 wealthiest list. California has only two of the wealthiest counties, Marin and Santa Clara.

Here are the top-10 wealthiest counties on the list:

Loudoun County, Va.
Fairfax County, Va.
Howard County, Md.
Hunterdon County, N.J.
Somerset County, N.J.
Fairfax (city), Va.
Morris County, N.J.
Douglas County, Colo.
Arlington County, Va.
Montgomery County, Md.
