A small suburb with major appeal, Great Falls tops this year’s list of affluent towns. Residents there enjoy wide-open spaces indoors and out. $1 million-plus homes set on two to five-acre lots ensure plenty of privacy; but if that’s not enough room, locals can spread out at Great Falls National Park where the Potomac River rushes through 800 acres of stunning wilds.
“There are no condos, apartments, or town homes in this suburb, but the distance between neighbors is less vast than you might think. An active newcomers group welcomes recent arrivals, and good old-fashioned socials in the Village Centre bring everyone together for holidays and summer concerts.” – CNN MONEY (Ranked #1 2013 Top Earning Towns)
