Nah. Charlotte sprawls a lot. Raleigh is the denser city actually.

But really for NC Chapel Hill-Carrboro takes this.

That's....interesting.

Not sure about density statistics (which really mean very little in a state full of post-war sprawlers), but in terms of urbanity, I think the top contenders are Charlotte (in a big city sort of way) and Asheville (in a classically urban sort of way).

Millbourne, PA is technically the most dense municipality, with 1,159 people in 45 acres.

Philadelphia, PA is the most dense city.

In Iowa it has to be Des Moines's downtown/East Village area, lots of new development going on. For overall city? It would have to be Dubuque with the city having lots of apartment buildings, rowhomes, and duplexes, it reminds me of a older city that could be in Pennsylvania.

Most Dense built for Alabama would be Birmingham. Population density would be Mobile.

Burlington, VT would be the most urban in Vermont and although it is very small it has a very vibrant and active downtown that has some projects in the planning process to improve the downtown area. The downtown is also surrounded by neighborhoods that average between 15,000 and 20,000 ppsm and are very walkable/bikeable.

In Texas the densest incorporated city is Mobile City, a tiny trailer park in Rockwall County outside Dallas (There are some denser CDP Colonias on the border). Other incorporated cities near the top are the smaller Houston suburbs of South Houston and Bellaire and the Ft. Worth Suburb of Bedford. For cities >200k, the Dallas suburb of Garland is the densest, followed by Dallas and Arlington. Houston is pretty close too. None of the big cities are very dense, they're all a very suburban 3,000-4,000 people per sq mile.
