I guess the question is: does wealthy=fancy? I’m thinking that I might consider Newburyport and Concord fancier than places like Weston, Dover, and Sudbury, because of their larger, more intact, historic downtowns despite not being as uniformly rich.

So my list would be....
- Newburyport
- Concord
- Beacon Hill / Back Bay

Not necessarily in that order.

Agreed. Stonington is twice fancy between Mystic and the Borough.

Greenwich, Darion, and New Canaan should probably be mention too, yeah? (I haven’t spent as much time in those as in Stonington)

Around Central Texas, seems like the small towns that get lots of attention as places to spend the day or weekend to relax and kick back, are:

Wimberly
Kerrville
Marble Falls
Fredericksburg

Someone did MD, so I'll do VA and DE.

Virginia

1. Alexandria
2. Tysons (Dropping "Corner" was done to make it feel even more upscale)
3. Falls Church

(Outside of NoVA)

1. Short Pump
2. Virginia Beach
3. Williamsburg

Delaware

1. Henlopen Acres
2. Woodbrook (really, the string of Wilmington suburbs along the Brandywine all qualify)
3. Lewes

Someone for NYC already mentioned those three as suburbs.

Stamford/New Haven are very diversified cities on population and economy with decent density. Greenwich/Darien/New Canaan plus Westport are small towns, actually one word pop in my mind for the four: rich and mansions, they are probably the reason for CT stereotypes.

Three would not be enough to represent whole CT. I would like to make below four clusters of cities/Towns for CT:

(1) Stamford/Greenwich/Darien/New Canaan/Westport
(2) New Haven/Milford/Branford/Guilford/Madison
(3) Hartford/West Hartford/Springfield, MA
(4) New London/Mystic/Stonington

Springfield is part of Massachusetts, it feels like a suburb of Hartford with a shared airport.

If I can only pick top three "fanciest" in CT, here is my three
(1) Mystic
(2) New Canaan
(3) Guilford

Just my thoughts but...
AZ: Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Sedona; when I was younger maybe Fountain Hills?
TN: Collierville, Nashville, maybe Knoxville? Idk on this one as much- some suburbs but not outright cities of Memphis and Nashville are both super nice but unsure if they count.
