It should come as no surprise that the wealthiest towns in the U.S. are largely situated near some of the country's most culturally rich and happening cities, such as New York, San Francisco and Chicago. Just north of New York City, Connecticut is actually the state with the greatest per-capita wealth in the nation — not to mention some of the most affluent towns.

Celebrities, businesspeople and politicians alike are among the residents of many of these rich suburbs, which means they get both the perks of small-town life and the vibrancy of the country's best cities. Check out the wealthiest towns in the U.S., all ranked by a Bloomberg analysis.
