Last year was the year to become an American millionaire and about 411,000 families did just that — the highest number since 2010.

One in 17 households qualify as millionaires as of 2017, which equates to about 7.2 million people who have over $1 million worth of investable assets according to the Wall Street Journal. Together these households control roughly 60 percent of America’s liquid assets. Here are the cities where the majority of American millionaires live:
