A place on the outskirts of the city, this way more people can live in a city. It is often confused with the rich suburbs, such as Beverly Hills, California, and Ladue, Missouri. Many races live here, not just whites.

Where you live when you dont want to live in the inner city. It's a place of mostly middle-class homes, Walmart, soccer moms, SUVs, strip malls and the homes of corporate bigwigs. Suburbs in the United States began to spring up during the post WWII years as families left the central cities for a quieter, safer and more relaxed lifestyle. However some suburbs are just as poor as the inner-city itself. According to the US census, the number of persons living in the suburbs now outnumbers those in the central cities.
Most Americans would probably rather live in a suburb than in the crime-infested inner city.

an area that is somewhat in between the rural areas and the cities. It is a typical neighborhood, with usually no apartments. watch the movie "over the hedge" and you will get a vague idea of what it is. contrary to what all the other dumb asses are saying on this site about suburbs, the suburbs are pretty freakin' much the best type of area to live in. They are not hellholes or places where white people steal and do drugs. If anything, I think that would be called the ghetto? just maybe? (sarcasm). They are perfect in virtually every way. they also have sidewalks. the houses don't all look alike either. I know, i live in one.
hey man, i live in the suburbs.

oh yeah?

yeah man, it's like a cross between the country and the city.

The suburbs is where most americans want to make a living. It is where successful individuals or couples who have made it somewhere in life through determination live. Whether or not the same can be said about their children is up for debate, but it is a HAVEN from the noise-ridden, polluted, and often crime / poverty infested city. People living in a suburb ADVANCED in life, and made it out of the city, or were lucky enough to have educated parents who raised them here. Whether or not those privileged appreciate it or not is also up for debate, but as one of those privileged individuals myself, I can honestly say that after 30 years of living in a New Jersey suburb, I have WISENED up enough to say that I am THANKFUL to live in a suburb. Sure, it can get boring, and there are downsides to living in a suburb, but as with anything in life, there are solutions, like earning your own car to get places, as I did (which I must say most 'urbanites' at my job are jealous of). And I must add its nice to come home from a 12 hour shift in the middle of summer to a very suburban SWIMMING POOL, rather than cooling off to a very urban FIRE HYDRANT.
There are mostly negative definitions of suburbanites here, and they are most likely coming from biased and jealous urban folks, who will NEVER make it out of the city, due to their child support issues, or their little record.

Despite what some people who aren't from the suburbs claim, the presence of "wiggers" in the suburbs is about as likely as the presence of ginger-haired leprechauns in Ireland. As a lifelong suburbanite I can say from my experiences that anyone close to a "wigger" tends to lower class and it's something they actually can identify with. However the suburbs may be partly responsible for the consumption of a lot of shitty pop rap and the commercialization of gangster rap, but few white suburbans actually end up trying to emulate these pop icons. People in the suburbs actually have jobs, and the people who are constantly buying things probably don't actually have the money to pay for them and are probably putting themselves in debt. The suburbs are only boring if you're boring. People in the suburbs have more time and access for a broader range of musical taste, so it's great if you're a real music enthusiast, if you're not there's the accessible top 40 crap for you. Some suburban kids may waste their time with pointless parties and drug use but there's plenty of other things to do in the comfort of the suburbs like starting your own band, writing a novel, preforming Shakespeare's plays in your backyard, skateboarding, etc. Boredom necessitates creativity. The cliques only matter if you're a stupid superficial person. At the end of the day though, the suburbs are really just bigger houses relatively far apart though, nothing inherently good or bad about them.
Non-suburban: The suburbs are full of wiggers, it must be hell living in the suburbs, everyone there wants to kill themselves.
Suburban: What's a wigger?
Non-suburban: They're all over the place in the suburbs!
Suburban: Whatever, I'm off to go watch my leprechauns preform Shakespeare in my backyard while the neighbor kids smoke weed and listen to Lil' Wayne.

Non-suburban: White kids listening to little Wayne and smoking weed? They must be wiggers!
Suburban: Not really, they're just, whatever, Hamlet is almost starting!
