An easy commute from Washington D.C., Bethesda is a hotspot for the highly educated, with nearly half of its residents boasting a graduate or professional degree. That may explain the incomes -- the highest on our list this year. They enable people to afford the luxe homes here, which are more than twice as pricey as the state average.
Though Washington D.C. is a quick Metro ride away, there's no need to head to the nation's capital for culture. Bethesda's urban downtown offers its own live theater, international cuisine and a variety of events, from monthly art walks to annual juried art competitions.
These terrific small cities offer strong job opportunities, great schools, low crime, quality health care, and a true sense of community.
