I think we are touching on something here realted to the fact that most metro areas have more than one hub. In many places there are multiple urban cores or workplace hubs in an area that are focus points for a metro area. One of the trends in a number of suburbs is the development of areas that have a large concentration of residences and/or offices.

I am picturing suburb is a place where people largely live but the blue and white collar workers commute somewere else for work. Places that have large numbers of those type jobs aren't really suburbs in that sense but something else.

I think this map is on the mark for the most part. I'll move San Diego up a bit north towards Orange County tho. Orange County is more similar to San Diego in mindset than Los Angeles.

I agree with most of the map, except that Santa Fe and Taos, NM are not within the confines of the Southwestern cultural region and those two places add to the very definition of Southwestern culture. I can see why the OP included Flagstaff, AZ in the Mountain West, it feels more like Colorado there.
