Actually Democrats do pretty well in the Richmond, Norfolk/Tidewater, and Charlottesville metro areas as well. Along with suburban Washington, this has been sufficient for Democrats to win most recent statewide elections in Virginia.

Monroe County (Key West) actually voted for Trump by 7%. And the Tampa-St Petersburg metro area voted for Trump (though Hillsborough County - where Tampa is - voted Clinton by 7%.

Maybe not "liberal", but Pittsburgh city proper voted 74.82% for Clinton (Trump won 20.62%). That's more Democratic than California, New York or Vermont!

Western Massachusetts is the most liberal part of Massachusetts after Boston and its adjacent suburbs (Somerville/Cambridge/Brookline/Newton, etc)

Berkshire County: 67% Clinton
Hampshire County: 66% Clinton
Franklin County: 63% Clinton
Hampden County: 55% Clinton

Plymouth, Bristol and Worcester (aka, The Boston Exurbs) are the most "conservative" parts of Massachusetts (though even these counties are blue overall).

I would think it is safe to say this occurs in many states.
Agree with all of these. Another is Montana. Blue in Missoula but about as red as you can get once you leave the area.

Western Maryland and the Eastern Shore of Maryland heavily favor the GOP however the most populous counties along I-95 (ie Baltimore and the Washington DC suburbs) heavily skew towards the Democratic Party.

In Ohio, it's the stereotypical urban blue VS rural red.

Litchfield County in the northwest part of the state is pretty red, most of the time. It's just old money out there and quiet areas tend to vote Republican. Every other part like the Hartford area, New Haven area, and Bridgeport-Stamford area will always vote blue but since the state is screwed over financially and economically, hopefully people will get their head out of their a** by voting Red for once in 2018.

Conservative voters have been leaving MA in droves. Many have left for NH due to lower taxes and lenient gun laws. Yet you have very liberal voters move from the Boston area to Southern NH for a quieter lifestyle. This is why NH elections are EXTREMELY close nearly every time. I believe the NH Senate race was only 600-1000 votes apart out of the hundreds of thousands votes casted.
