California, not Florida, is home to the richest retirement towns in the U.S., according to a new report

Estate planningGoBankingRates.com recently ranked the wealthiest retirement towns in the United States. The study considered cities with at least 25% of residents aged 65 or older, and ranked them by median household income. 

The richest retirement town is Ranchos Palos Verdes, California, with a median household income of $166,747. Other wealthy retirement towns include Highland Park, Illinois; Bainbridge Island, Washington; and East Honolulu, Hawaii. California dominates the list with four towns in the top 10, while Florida has one.
