Got a Million Bucks? Move to Easton, Maryland

Sure, we already know that the areas surrounding Washington, DC have quite a few millionaires, but did you know that the small town of Easton, Maryland does as well? With a population of just over 14,000, moving to Easton might give you a really good chance of bumping shoulders with a millionaire.

Or, if you are already a millionaire, maybe you will fit right in! What’s stopping you from moving to a small town?

Millionaires don’t just live in the bright lights of the big cities. They move to small, low-key towns just like us. The almost 8% concentration of millionaires in Easton, Maryland just helps drive that point home. The metropolitan population is almost 40,000 with 1,200 or so millionaire households. There are almost 200 households that have $5 million or more in investable assets.

Just remember, moving to Easton doesn’t require you to be a millionaire. Actually, the median household income is $61,591, which is right on par with most of the United States.

So, what’s the appeal of this sleepy little town? Well, a big night out might include a local bluegrass show, fire-hall bingo, or a perfectly stimulating lecture on the social habits of the White House. Because of its proximity to Washington, DC, Easton serves as a well-deserved retreat for our great nation’s lobbyists, politicians, and other well-off Washingtonians.

In recent years, Easton has emerged in the environmental sciences sector as well as the B&B scene. So, if you work in either industry and are looking to make a new start, moving to Easton, Maryland might be a good move!
