I would say Jacksonville Florida, though probably only because most Americans ( I think) forget it exist. The city population ( not speaking of metro) is around 800,000.

Most cities have neighborhoods that feel like small towns! I love those types

San antonio looks nothing like a small town, with it's neverending freeways. It's historical and has some quaint areas, but looks and feels like a big city.

I think Austin feels a lot more like a smaller city than its population reflects, much more than San Antonio. SA can feel bigger than its metro population at times.

San Antonio to me fells BIG, nothing close to a small town or even small city, San Antonio is busy and has lots of freeways, SA is alot bigger than I expected and it fells busier and bigger than Atlanta,Phoenix,and Denver even though they have bigger metro areas.

I definitely agree with Colorado Springs, tgh1.

I would also add Wichita, it has around 350,000 people, but feels small.
