9) Indian River Shores
Indian Shores population is estimated to be around 4,000 with a per-capita income of $102,511. The town is primarily made up of low-density, gated residential areas. Indian Shores is highlighted by magnificent sandy beaches. Indian Shores is one of the few affluent communities on the list with affordable property, such as single-family homes in the hundreds of thousands of dollars as opposed to tens of millions of dollars. Despite the affordability, Indian Shores remains in the top ten most affluent communities in Florida. Like much of Florida, the population nearly doubles during peak tourism season as people come to enjoy the subtropical climates, beaches, and activities. Locals have the luxury of separating themselves from an almost party-like scene as many of the town’s homes are set back within their quiet and guarded neighborhoods. Life in Indian Shores can offer a nice mix of wealth, as well as more affordable living in a paradise setting.
