I'm throwing in some Canadian cities b/c there are some pretty good matches in my opinion

Baltimore-Pittsburgh-Milwaukee
Cleveland-Detroit
Boston-San Francisco
Seattle-Vancouver, BC
Toronto-Chicago
Philly-Chicago
Houston-Atlanta-Dallas
San Diego-Miami
Providence, RI-Portland, OR
St Louis-Indianapolis
New Orleans-Mobile, AL
Kansas City-Cincinnati
Denver-Minneapolis (other than the geography)

Some cities that I think really don't have twin cities
-New York-too big and bustling, there is nothing else on its scale in The U.S. or Canada (sorry Chicago)
-L.A.-the sprawl is simply staggering
-Washington-There can only be one capital. And the architecture and urban parks and green spaces are so unique
-Phoenix-Other than Las Vegas, there really isn't another HUGE city just plopped in the middle of a desert. And that is clearly where the similarities end between the two cities.
-Vegas-Enough said (sorry Atlantic City, you're a dump)

JJohns I totally agree with your list.
I've never been to Portland, but a good friend of mine is trying to get me to move there, and she compares it to Providence, where we were both raised.
After traveling the country and living in different states my picks are:
Excuse my typos if any..its after 2 and I'm not doing spellcheck

Philly/pittsburgh/detroit
Cleveland/cincinatti
Memphis/louisville
Lowell ma/pawtucket RI
There is no place like nyc. Can't touch it.
Providence has neighborhoods and streets that are very much like brooklyn, bronx, connecticut and parts of england. Its a total mix, depending on where you are.
Some people think its a quaint little town, others are culture shocked because they never realized we have culture, the "ghetto", and a big city feel in a small city sometimes..
Ok I'm off on a tangien..
Continuing...
Atlanta has a lot of similarities to charlotte, but just at there is one nyc I really can't compare atlanta. Its country/ghetto/sprawling "scarlett ohara" mansions and big city divaish all rolled in one. Depending on where you are.
Iowa and kansas are sooo much alike to me
Minnesota and n.
dakota
I know...I'm comparing states...ummm
New Bedford ma & fall river ma
San diego/orlando
