From the perspective of a visiting Atlantan, I was in Uptown on a Friday night and found it just as you describe. Not all of the posters from here have an ax to grind against Charlotte.

I've never been to San Antonio but I really really beg to differ that it beats out New Orleans.

If by "in the city" we are talking within city limits, and the whole city not just the downtown or tourist/entertainment districts, I'd say NOLA beats 'em all.

Go ahead and include it! We've included NOLA. But Miami, city limits only (not Miami Beach, a separate city), really doesn't have that much foot traffic outside of downtown/Brickell and a few blocks in the Grove.

You can say that about all of those cities though. Outside of downtown Atlanta are there REALLY that many people walking around? And what about Nola, outside of the French Quarter are people REALLY out walking the whole city?
