Yes, "rich" varies tremendously from local to local.

I used to work for a major corporation back in the 90s which relocated a lot of people from California to Texas. They cut everyone's salary by 15% but all the relocated people felt like they'd gotten a big pay raise. One of my colleagues found that he could buy a two story classic farm house with six rooms, a wrap around porch and five acres for what he was paying for a two bedroom loft in coastal California.

Cost of living makes a big difference and it piles up.
