Charlotte's size in area is larger than Atlanta and Miami combined - that's a large part of the reason.

Density makes cities feel bigger than thy are. All the cities OP lists that feel small feel that way because they are sprawling and heavily suburban in nature. All the cities that feel like they're bigger punch above their weight because they're denser than the first group

Very soon the Cincinnati/Dayton corridor ("CIN-DAY") will become a combined metro of nearly 3.2 million people.
What has changed to make that happen? I find it odd that realistically anyone can say that Cincy is the largest metro in Ohio. Akron is in a county that borders Cleveland's core county, excluding Akron from Cleveland is disingenuous. I realize currently that is what the census does, but excluding it in terms of discussions is clearly deceptive.

Density CAN make a city feel bigger than it is, but there are other factors that contribute to a larger feeling as well. Density definitely is not the only thing, and the cities listed before have large urban areas as well as sprawling suburbs - and all cities in the US have sprawling suburbs, including yours. But that doesn't really come into play when talking about how large the CITY feels.
