Phoenix is much larger than Denver. This is such a silly comparison.

Denver puts phoenix to shame! In almost any stat you can throw up, Denver would win! Again, Denver stacks up well against most cities under 6 million when you take EVERYTHING into the equation!!!

Baltimore is much smaller than all three of these. When traveling to these cities, Tampa and St. Louis look and feel considerably larger than Baltimore, while Cleveland is even larger.

Riverside is the Inland Empire of Los Angeles. What do you expect. It really isn't a true metro area, but a component of the Greater LA metropolitan area. Of course, it isn't going to have the components of a primary city.

I've been to Denver, and it looks incredibly small. It looks similar to Jacksonville, Florida in size. Well, maybe a little larger. I'd say that it's on the order of Nashville, Memphis, or Charlotte in size.

It's a very dense, old-world-feeling, cosmopolitan city--much more so than most large cities in the US.
Old World & Cosmopolitan in the same sentence? Isn't that an oxymoron?

No, considering you could consider many cities in Europe to feel both cosmopolitan and diverse yet with an Old World atmosphere in parts due to historical architecture and style.

Yeah, but you still haven't offered any explanation as to why Denver cannot hang with most U.S. metros in the 5-6 million population range. Your [mis]perception about Denver's size is not a valid argument. After all, this topic is smaller cities that can stack up with larger ones, so it has already been conceded that Denver is the smaller city because we are trying to compare it to larger ones.

Baltimore is larger than all of these cities by atleast a coupe hundred thousand. It's more urban than all of these cities. And their metros are all around the same with Cleveland actually being the smallest.
