Bill and Hillary Clinton put this little hamlet on the map in 1999 when they bought a 5-bedroom, 100-year-old Dutch colonial there for $1.7 million. These days, newly built grand estates in Chappaqua go for several times that. Other notable residents have included New York governor Andrew Cuomo and Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley.

More country than chic, this secluded suburb 35 miles north of New York keeps a low profile. A Saturday farmer's market attracts locavores hungry for the freshest eggs, produce and herbs. And annual events like the Strawberry Festival and Ragamuffin Parade mark the seasons.
