I will discuss the reasons why nearby galaxies present unique opportunities to understand the processes that lead to the formation of X-ray binaries both in and out of globular clusters. I will show results explaining how we have now developed a good understanding of what properties of star clusters lead them to form X-ray binaries. Finally, I will discuss the topic of black holes in globular clusters—why theory originally predicted that they should not exist, the new evidence that shows that they, in fact, do exist, and how several of the first discoveries of black holes in globular clusters are unique objects in their own right, holding key information for understanding the nature of the ultraluminous X-ray sources.
