Declaring Danville as one of the Bay Area's wealthiest suburbs, the article made mention of former resident and famous playwright Eugene O'Neill, and his former estate, the Tao House.
The winners were chosen based on median family incomes. No. 1 and No. 2 were New Canaan and Darien, Conn., and No. 3 was Lake Forest, Ill.
Other Bay Area cities that made the list were Saratoga at No. 4, Los Altos at No. 6, and Lafayette at No. 21.
Money Magazine also voted Danville No. 69 in the top 100 places to live and launch in an article late last year, listing easy access to San Francisco as a pro, with the downside being high home prices.
