Pound Ridge NY Real Estate | Revealed: The manliest cities in America

Oklahoma is officially the manliest city in America, according to COMBOS.

The snack food company’s fourth annual list of the manliest cities in the US, produced in partnership with BestPlaces research firm Bert Sperling, saw Oklahoma City climb from third place in 2011 to become the country’s manliest town, above Columbia, Memphis and last year’s former winner Nashville.

Cities gain points for bowling, fishing woodworking and DIY, explains the report, while high concentrations of “manly businesses”, such as BBQ restaurants and steak houses, also add to a town’s testosterone. Other blokey bonus points come from residents owning foreign cars and minivans, as well as each city’s proximity to NASCAR events and major league sports teams.

The number of “manly magazine subscriptions” in a city is also a deciding factor.

The butchest contender was Tampa in Florida, which rose a surly 16 places from 39th to 23rd in the country. Chicago, meanwhile, saw the biggest drop in the manliness rankings, falling by 13 spots to rank 37th in the US.
