Windsor obviously has its own suburbs, even though Detroit and Windsor combined form one large international metro.

Which town? La Marque? Never really thought about Galveston having it's suburbs. North of the island, I always thought of the area as mish-mash of bay area towns; Clear Lake (Houston), Webster, League City, Friendswood, Nassau Bay, Kemah, etc...

Good post because it wasn’t obvious to me and I’ve been to Windsor. I would’ve thought it too small to have a suburb.

South Florida also come to mind. Broward County seems to be mainly suburbs of Fort Lauderdale, and Palm Beach County seems to be mainly suburbs of West Palm Beach.

Everything south of the middle of Galveston County is suburban Galveston. There used to be a sharp cutoff in urban areas but they're more interconnected now.

Camden and Chester immediately come to mind for the Philadelphia area. Camden in particular has a unique suburban identity sperate from the Philadelphia burbs in South Jersey.

True, but Port Credit and Streetsville were former towns that got incorporated into Mississauga.

Very true. South Jersey is very different from the four suburban Pennsylvania counties.
