I know Silicon Valley in San Jose, CA comes in 1st, nothing could even touch that but what are some other very important suburban corporate districts?

Where I live [Long Island], the Melville area is extremely important to the local economy. Some of the major corporations headquartered in Melville (that I can remember off the back of my head) are:
- Sbarro
- Canon
- Estee Lauder
- Chyron
- Henry Schein
- Swissair
- Nikon
- Adecco
- Allion Healthcare
- OSI Pharmaceuticals

How about places like Young America, Minnesota, and Blair, Nebraska, which are the addresses for huge consumer product mailing enterprises.

Just for clarity, you mean corporate communities that have a campus-like environment?

In Atlanta, the Perimeter area is probably best known for that, followed by Cumberland/Vinings, Northlake, Peachtree Corners and Executive Park. Executive Park was the first suburban office park in the Southeastern US.

Uptown is an interesting animal.

There are both suburban & urban qualities to it. Yes, you see people walking around, but there are also surface lots & strip centers everywhere. Hopefully the new light rail line going through there soon will change that.

The Woodlands is suburban, but its quite densely packed office campuses. There is faux urban living around there fronting a river walk.
