Chesterfield is in Stl.

Frankly, there isn't much "fancy" in Missouri outside of KC and StL.

Maybe Jackson which is just a bedroom community for rich people in Cape. Possibly Hermann because of the wineries and tourism.

There is certainly lots of money around LOA and Table Rock, but I it isn't really "fancy." At least not in the way I conceptualize "fancy"

Chesterfield is a suburb of STL like Parkville is a suburb of KC. Yes the state doesn’t have so called fancy cities and quite frankly I can only think of suburbs as fancy outside the big cities.

You're right, Missouri is a real challenge outside the metros. Maybe Booneville? Or Hannibal os Sedalia, because they draw visitors.

Florida:
Palm Beach
Coral Gables
Winter Park

(I include Winter Park instead of Boca Raton because, while Boca Raton may be wealthier at high points, it is less uniformly affluent than Winter Park I think) Places like Jupiter Island and Casey Key could be considered, but I don't believe they are technically cities, nor do they function as such.

Texas:
River Oaks, Houston
Preston Hollow, Dallas
Old West Austin or maybe West Lake Hills

Michigan:
Ann Arbor
The Grosse Points
Maybe Bloomfield Hills?

California:
La Jolla, San Diego
Bel Air, Los Angeles or Beverly Hills
Pacific Heights, San Francisco

Minnesota:
Lake of the Isles (Lowry Hill/Kenwood), Minneapolis
Summit Hill, St. Paul
A lot of people would probably say Edina should be on the list, but I'd probably go with the various cities on Lake Minnetonka (Minnetonka Beach, Orono, Wayzata, Deephaven, Woodland, Tonka Bay, Shorewood, etc).
