I'm going strictly by city limits instead of urban area.

In general larger, less dense cities should tend to "feel" smaller than more dense, compact cities because most people don't visit everywhere and it's easier to see more of a smaller city. If they did visit more of the larger cities,then they might have a better idea of how large some of the less dense cities really are. That is, if they know where the city limits are, which is usually not obvious when you're tooling around.

San Antonio. Phoenix has a large downtown area with skyscrapers that actually go above 200 ft. San Antonio is just tower of the americas, some random antanna tower and a few low skyscrapers. Then the rest is just nothing but small ugly shack houses that litter the area around central san antonio

San Antonio has about 20 buildings over 200 ft. although I'm not saying that's alot either. As for ugly shacks yes San Antonio has them but they are quickly disappearing in order to make way for urban density, like townhomes, lofts, and apartments.
