In Florida wealth has been known to amply spread among industries like real estate, amusement parks, insurance and resorts. Certain destinations thrive above others, of course, and among these stands South Florida, a region with six of the wealthiest ZIP codes in Florida—Key Biscayne being the wealthiest ZIP code in the state.
The American City Business Journals reported that Key Biscayne, located south of Miami Beach and east of Miami, stands atop a list of expensive, yet flourishing communities that continue to grow tenfold. Residents in this cozy jewel earn an annual per capita income of $79,020 and a median household income of $121,434.
Closely behind, the second wealthiest ZIP code in the state, 33158, also resides in South Florida, encompassing an area near South Miami and Coral Gables, where the annual per capita income is $61,350, and a median household income of $95,787.
The figures reveal that wealth is condensed among these areas in Miami-Dade County. For the rest of the county, though, the median household income was $43,129, and the per capita income was $23,850, according to a 2015 report from the U.S. Census Bureau.
Other areas that ranked among the top 10 places in Florida include: South Beach, Coral Gables, Pinecrest, Palmetto Bay, Parkland, Ocean Ridge and Highland Beach.
