Did you know that some special suburbs in America have among the “most envied” lifestyles in America? Apparently, a handful of Michigan suburbs make the cut. That doesn’t surprise me. Michigan has some fantastic areas to live, and many of those areas are suburbs. So, which Michigan suburbs have the most envied lifestyles in America?
The study comes from MovingFeedback.com. In it, they list the 175 suburbs with the most envied lifestyles across the country, ranked by 3,000 Americans. “Prior to the pandemic, metropolitan areas like New York City, San Francisco, and Miami were seen as the ideal places to live,” they state in the article. “However, the pandemic-induced flexibility in work arrangements has spotlighted the appeal of suburban lifestyles that offer the best urban and rural settings. So, we wondered, which suburbs across America have the most appeal?” They set out to answer that question by running an online panel survey of 3,000 adults in America. The rankings told a lot.
The suburb with the No. 1 most envied lifestyle in America is Calabasas, California. My aunt actually lives there. “Calabasas is known for its upscale neighborhoods with luxurious properties, beautiful scenery, and proximity to natural attractions such as the Santa Monica Mountains,” they explain. “The city’s low crime rate, excellent schools, and various high-end amenities also contribute to its reputation as an attractive and affluent community.” Coming in at No. 2 in America is Ponte Vedra Beach in Florida, followed by Huntington Bay, New York at No. 3.
