Which metro area has the best surburban areas? My vote go's to Washington DC with Boston a close second. The suburban limits don not have to be within the confines on inner ring Greenwich, CT or Bellevue WA or anything in between. I tend no to prefer the less cookie cutter/tract housing communities but if that's your cup of tea then talk about it.

Why is Minneapolis never included in these polls?

We're bigger than half of those cities.

Anyways, Minneapolis-St. Paul has over 325 suburbs. 325. That's what you get when you have two cities that only take up 110 sq miles in a 6,300 sq mile metro. Biased, I know but I really haven't experienced many others.

Hi, let's make a poll that inlcudes St. Louis, Cleveland, San Diego, Kansas City, Portland, Miami, and not include the Twin Cities, which are big as or bigger than all the ones I listed.

OK You have made your point, was not intentional and I'm pretty aware MSP holds considerable weight as a metro area

To a moderater in the audience, please add Minneapolis-St. Paul to the poll, I'm sure it has some lovely suburbs. Wouldn't it be nice if C-D made editing options easier?

In terms of large, urban suburbs I would choose Los Angeles or Washington DC. In terms of quaint, quiet, "old country" suburbs Boston & New York are my favorites. I would assume Philadelphia would have very similar suburbs to Boston & New York but I've never been to any of them so I can't comment.

Wherever there's a good amount of traditional Italian american influenced towns, history, and where there's a good amount of color throughout. (Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, etc)

NYC-Chicago-Philadelphia-Boston in that order.
