New Jersey is one of the wealthiest states in the country, second only to Maryland. Our most affluent counties are Morris, Somerset and Hunterdon, with Bergen and Monmouth close behind. Our 15 most affluent cities follow, based on the most recent median household income data available. The median income, as of 2013, is listed alongside the town name.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
