For the LA area (If we consider these separate cities to be suburbs)

Pasadena - Rose Bowl, Museums, Food, etc
Santa Monica - Beach, Pier, 3rd Street, Food
Beverly Hills
Anaheim

Hey, Rockville is a hidden treasure. Seriously though, Alexandria VA would be the tourist "suburb" here, and technically Arlington Cemetery is in the suburbs too, though pragmatically it's part of the Mall environment. Other point destinations (for exhibits) would be places like Udvar-Hazy Center in Dulles VA, NASA Goddard in Greenbelt MD or the Gateway To NOAA in Silver Spring MD.

It really should be considered the fourth borough, as it's highly superior to the Bronx and Staten Island.

It's actually the place to be now, really blossoming into something special.

Vaughan is Toronto's destination suburb thanks to Canada's Wonderland.

Probably better to stay in West Hartford instead of Hartford.

Cambridge, MA, is probably right below Miami Beach or Scottsdale. The Harvard and MIT campuses are destinations in their own right to a degree.

Santa Monica is probably a good choice, too, with tourists who visit the pier.

Clearwater and St. Petersburg are also good candidates, although the Tampa Bay Area seems truly multi-nodal like the Twin Cities or Bay Area.
Cambridge is an anchor at this point.

As if LA doesn't have enough intra-city suburban neighborhoods.

The casinos need some way to get around the gaming commissions and taxes.

Cambridge doesn't count, it's as core as they come. For Boston, it would probably be Salem. Definitely during this time of the year.

I don't count Santa Monica or Jersey City for the same reason I don't count Cambridge.

Paradise NV jumped out in my mind, also Lake Buena Vista outside Orlando (Disney World).

I folly you on Cambridge, because of its proximity to the core and comparative density to Boston's. In Santa Monica's case, its distance from downtown is a giveaway suburban trait. Jersey City is an urban node on its own, IMO.

It may be further from DTLA but Santa Monica is its own thing. Nothing suburban about it.
