Phoenix definitely felt larger than San Antonio to me, at least from my car on the 10 and driving around some of the city streets. For me it is the "midtown" area of Phoenix along Central Ave and Tempe around the ASU campus that puts it over the top. Street-level San Antonio seemed to have a more walkable downtown, outside of that they are both on the same level.

San Diego. For me its not about the skyscrapers but about it feels. It almost feels like a big town. Kind of on the sleepy side for a city with over a million residents.

The Phoenix region is definitely larger in reality and in feel to the San Diego region. As far as central cities are concerned, they're about the same. San Diego has a more dominant skyline and downtown, while Phoenix has a larger geographic area of city limits.

San Antonio feels the smallest, and at the metro level this makes sense. They have nearly a million less in the metro area than the next smallest on the list, San Diego.

San Diego. The whole county has 3 million+ people, but it feels more like a large town that the nation's 8th biggest city. Maybe it has to do with the suburban sprawl???
