The city propers don't border but looks like they are only a mere 30 minute drive from the Wisconsin border.

Omaha is right on the Iowa line

Cheyenne is very close to Colorado line

I feel like the general public is probably unaware that Detroit borders Canadia

Yes, Hudson, WI is considered to be the eastern edge of the Twin Cities metro. I'm guessing without looking that it's about 10 miles east of St. Paul.

It actually borders it in two different locations.

Dubuque, IA borders Illinois and Wisconsin. Definitely not a major city, but it's decent sized small city/big town.

For example, I think most people in general realize that NYC city limits border New Jersey. Or that DC city limits border Virginia and Maryland.

I don't think most people realize that Chicago borders Indiana, or that Charlotte borders South Carolina.

Please keep this specifically to city limits as the parameters, not metros that border a state.

What are some that you can think of?
I think most know that Chicago borders Wisconsin, but not Indiana...not as much of a connection, with Indiana.

But Chicago does not border Wisconsin. Chicago is proper is like a 45 minute drive from the Wisconsin border. Indiana actually borders the city. You literally can be standing in the city of Chicago cross the street and POOF you are now in Indiana.

The suburbs connect...trains run back and forth between Milwaukee and Chicago 7x daily...and they're adding 3 daily runs. I'd say that's a connection. Maybe you made the post with this in mind...city proper, only. City proper usually doesn't mean anything, unless the OP restricts it to that. I've lived in Milwaukee and Chicago, and trust me, there's a huge connection. Also, people are saying Minneapolis borders WI, it does, but it's the suburbs that do.
