The Richest City in California

I would have guessed it was Atherton.  However, according to data form the American Community Survey, it is actually Hidden Hills.

In fact, the 2011, five-year estimates of median family income from the ACS for both Atherton and Hidden Hills are "$250,000+", however in the 2009 five-year estimates, Atherton was only $219,922, while Hidden Hills was $250,000+ in both years.

If you are curious what the homes in Hidden Hills look like, then unless you know someone from there who can show you around, you may have to rely on satellite images from Google...the Street view function of Google Maps does not contain images from Hidden Hills...apparently the entire city is a gated community!

Take that Atherton!!!
