the richest areas are inside gated communities where you can only get to if you have alot of connections or alot of money. the rich basically live in isolated worlds here.

There are many wealthy areas in Florida. Naples, Jupiter, Parkland, Tequesta, parts of Boca Raton and Miami to name a few.

And yes, the wealthy do actually leave their gated communities...every, single day. They shop, eat out, go to their businesses, go to their country clubs, etc.

And there is this little thing known as the internet...another way of reaching the wealthy in their "isolated worlds".

Wow, some of the posts on this forum crack me up!

For a commercial area that serves the wealthy residents, check out Key Biscayne, South Miami, Coral Gables and Aventura.

There are plenty of "wealthy " areas in Florida , but since this is the Miami forum I will focus on South East and South West Florida .... Aventura , Bal Harbour , Coral Gables , Gables Estates , Pine Crest , Weston , Parkland , Boca Raton , Palm Beach , Naples , Marco Island , Key Biscayne , Sarasota , etc , etc ....

what kind of restaurant? what kind of food? These rich people down here are picky and won't just eat anything.

one of the most exclusive areas to live is Indian Creek Island. There are only about 30 homes on the island along with the Indian Creek Country Club. I imagine most of the people there hire chefs to come in to the house and prepare meals.

Boca Raton. My husband works there, and he gets paid very well. He makes a lot of money. If your looking for money and a safe community, Boca is the place.

I concur with everyone above. In Palm Beach County, the richest communities are Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens, Wellington, Palm Beach, and Boca Raton.

Palm Beach Gardens is exploding in retail and speciality shops right now in their downtown area, and the Gardens mall there has one of only three Chanel stores in the entire State if it's any indication of how corporations view the future of high end retailing in Florida!
