Highland Lakes, Alabama
The town of Highland Lakes, is, as you assumed, surrounded by glittering blue lakes and nestled with mountains, turning it into one of the most expensive towns in Alabama. Alongside the permanent residents, many people own holiday homes there as the tranquility of this place is the perfect escape from the big city life.

Rumson, New Jersey
Rumson is one of New Jersey's wealthiest towns, which is no surprise once you drive around the colossal mansions and their private gardens. Out of the 7,000 people inhabiting this rich township, some of the more famous ones include Jon Bon Jovi, Queen Latifah, Heather Locklear, Charlie Puth, and the one-and-only, Bruce Springsteen.
Of course, the prices of each house are proportional to their size, so you're going to need a few million dollars to even put a down payment on a house. For a house with 7 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, you'd have to pay around $11 million, so we gather that a regular apartment might be quite pricey also.
New Albany, Ohio
New Albany has a population of over 10,000, but it still feels like a friendly town. While its lavish houses may not feel too "quaint", the people are certainly very modest and down-to-earth. New Albany is one of the best places to live in Ohio, and if you can swing the expensive real estate, you would be lucky to call this place home.
The houses are incredibly expensive, running between $600,000 and $7 million. But on the bright side, there's so much nature you'd probably be fine in a tent!
Old Greenwich, Connecticut
Old Greenwich is a small neighborhood in Greenwich, Connecticut, and it is best described as a classic beauty owned by residents that come from old money. Described by the New York Times as a "front-porch kind of place", Old Greenwich is a quiet, and very wealthy, oasis surrounded by multicolored trees and majestic estates.
What makes this town special is the fact that, even though it is littered with mansions, there is still somewhat of a small-town feel to it. The wealthy coastal neighborhood of Old Greenwich is home to wealthy Wall Street executives, professional athletes, and CEOs. Who else could afford a $10 million mansion with a huge yard?
