Wealthy neighborhoods are often known for their higher standards of living and the various opportunities they offer. The wealthiest places in Michigan are no exception. They have a variety of different community atmospheres for people seeking different types of comfortable living accommodations. Michigan is often referred to as the “other coast,” due to the large area of coastline created by two of the surrounding Great Lakes, Michigan and Huron. There’s a lot to see and do for residents here. According to the United States Census Bureau, here are the 10 wealthiest neighborhoods in Michigan.
1) Barton Hills
Barton Hills is a small village of approximately 300 people in southeastern Michigan. Over 65% of the population is 45 years or older. Just over a quarter of households have children though, so there is some variation in resident ages. The per capita income in Barton Hills sits at a lofty $110,683. The cost of living index for this village is lower than the national average, so although Barton Hills is wealthy, it is not necessarily a pipe dream for people who are not rich. Since it is such a small town, it does not itself have many attractions, but within a few miles of the village, in Ann Arbor, there are museums, restaurants, theatres, and sports venues.
