Well, Winnetka is also one of the richest towns in America. says the average household income in Winnetka is a whopping $331,231.

Winnetka is only the second richest town in Illinois though.

Glencoe, with an average household income of $339,883 and only three miles from Winnetka, is the richest town in Illinois.

Classic flicks like Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Sixteen Candles were also shot in Glencoe.
