What are the richest cities and towns in South Carolina? There is a lot of money in the Palmetto State but there is one region that takes the cake so to say. The financial experts at Forbes recently conducted an analysis to determine the richest places in the state of South Carolina. To do this they looked at over 400 cities aka census-designated places in SC. Cities were ranked on four metrics including median household income, mean household income, median home value, and median property taxes paid.
So which cities made the cut? The top 5 were all clustered in one area of the state. While I won’t spoil that surprise quite yet I will give you the (probably unneeded) hint that it’s a coastal area. You’ll find detailed info below about each of the top 5 cities and towns that are the richest places in South Carolina in 2023 according to Forbes. You’ll also find info on the other cities that made the top 50 list that are in the vicinity of Charlotte.
If you live in any of these cities and towns and have some extra cash to share just let me know! Looking for more detailed information? You can get that directly from Forbes and can read more here.
