Mapping Success: High-Earning Enclaves in Tri-Cities, Washington Zip Codes

You'd be surprised at what zip codes in the Tri-Cities Washington area have the highest earnings.

The Zip Codes Making The Most Money in Tri-Cities, Washington

Many would assume that Richland has the highest earners in the Columbia basin and while Richland does make the list, another area of the Tri-Cities takes the top spot on the highest-earning zip code.

I once heard a good adage and it doesn't work for everyone but someone once told me that your age is a good measure on what your average yearly salary should be.

It was good advice so for example, if you are 26 and making $26,000 or above a year, you are doing pretty good. If you are 55, hopefully, you are making $55,000 or better a year.

Again, that's what I was told as a kid and even though it's not scientific, it does make a lot of sense.
