6) Orchid Island
The per- capita income of Orchid, Florida is $135,870 with a population of slightly less than 200. The majority of the town is a gated community called Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club. The remaining part of Orchid is uninhabited islands and wild preserves. Much of the area focuses on wildlife and preservation such as the Environmental Learning Center, Jungle Trail, and The National Wildlife Refuge (not the features you would expect to hear about with one of the wealthiest communities in Florida). However, hidden among the preserves and wildlife are some fantastic million dollar Mediterranean style homes reaching well into the tens of millions. The sparse population of the island allows for a tranquil and relaxing lifestyle in the lap of luxury. Orchid, like many other communities on this list is a place where mega-mansions are stunning and hidden behind a mask of beauty that includes water and tall trees.
