Money Magazine has released their list of the top American cities for the rich and single, and Newport Beach comes in at Number 1.

And why not? It's LA-adjacent, but has the none of the grit of the big city, and you can shop for yachts, take moonlight strolls on the beach, and hide away in a suburban manse with a killer ocean view.

Other SoCal cities where you can find your deep-pocketed soul (or play) mate: Irvine (#5), Redondo Beach (#12), and Santa Monica (#23).
