6 Most Expensive Cities in the United States of America

If you were wondering which are the most expensive cities in the United States to live, here is a list of the 6 most expensive cities according to a survey conducted by Forbes.

New York City

It should come to you as no big surprise that NYC is the most expensive city in the U.S. It is also the 8th most expensive city in the world, and a six figure income would put you under lower middle class category. Average monthly rent is $2,800, day care fees would be $2,000 a month or more, and a cup of coffee is $4.5. Big Apple require big amounts of money.

Los Angeles

If you wanted to live with the Hollywood stars, enjoy the sun, sand and the glamour, be prepared to spend a hell lot of money. L.A is the second most expensive city in the U.S and also comes with unemployment, high gas prices and other unpleasant issues.

Honolulu, Hawaii

Honululu might be a tourist destination but it has to import its fuel, food and even water sometimes. Thus, it is a terribly expensive city for a city of its size. Monthly apartment rentals cost $1,800 or more.

Aspen, Colorado

If you wanted to live in a skiing town, Aspen is an amazing place. It has Gucci, Prada and other high-end retailers but homes cost $2.6 million in 2010 or more.

Juneau, Alaska

Same as Honolulu, and costs a hell lot of money and is the 5th most expensive city in the U.s. Everything has to be imported from mainland, so even a gallon of petrol costs $9.


This Floridan city houses celebrities like Shakira, Enrique Iglesias and Lenny Kravitz but is also the 6th most expensive city in the U.S.
