Definitely. Dallas my demographics, politics, socially, are not similar at all. Fort Worth, however, is more similar. The only thing Dallas and OKC has in common is the topography.

People are naming Philly and Chicago as mistakable for each other, but I don't think they actually feel that similar, considering their populations and population densities aren't far apart. Philly feels to me like Baltimore or DC - older, lots of rowhouses, narrow streets, frequently building right up to the curb. Chicago is more like Milwaukee or the nicer parts of Detroit, maybe Cleveland.

Nobody wants to admit to being like the other.
Agree. North Texas is similar to Oklahoma in so many ways in general. Same scenery, small towns all feel the same, same climate, same twang pretty much. Biggest difference is North Texas has more Mexicans and Oklahoma has more American Indians.

Also Dallas is not like Houston. I wouldn't even WANT to compare Dallas to Houston. I like Dallas, and Houston is kinda trashy and has worse air. Also Houston's got that deep south scenery and Dallas is the plains.

Phoenix- LA/Inland Empire
Atlanta-Charlotte
Dallas- OKC
Houston- can't think of another large bayou city to be honest, it doesn't look like New Orleans
Chicago- Milwaukee
Seattle- Portland or Vancouver
San Francisco- nowhere, no place looks or feels like San Francisco
Yes

No. Salt Lake is drier, and it's dominated by the LDS church even though, yes, I know, the city is about 40% non-LDS. LDS population in Denver is 1.8%.

San Francisco doesn't match any of these.
Denver is landlocked and dry. Has a dry, 4 season climate with lots of sun. Seattle is on Puget Sound and green, has two seasons, sort of and drippy, dreary. Atlanta is in a forested area, very green. Also in the US south and has a humid sub-tropical climate short, mild winters and long, hot summers.

Atlanta: Mix of Charlotte and Los Angeles
Seattle: Portland more than Vancouver
San Francisco: Nowhere else; it's its own thing for better or worse
Forget SLC.

I've seen other compare similarities Between Philly and Chicago? I personally do not see it. I mean:
- Philly is 60% fully blocks of a wall row-homes .... and Chicago is 60% not.
- Both cities follow a grid and older mass transit lines
- Chicago has standard set-backs of frontage in neighborhoods off main streets. Philly did not.
- Chicago is more a high-rise living city in amount and older Apartment buildings were more common. Recently Philly is getting more high-rises built and Chicago still adding to its numbers.
Chicago has full alleyways as standard in 90% of the city. Philly has its oldest core areas with alleys.... but many areas do not, or its some portions do and others do not, but some neighborhood blocks and many oldest streets are alley-sized themselves vs Chicago's.

Just housing in general is not similar. Why Philadelphians link themselves to more NYC Borough-like outside of Manhattan of course. Old Toronto has row-housing stock.... so there some similarities.
