2nd Annual “America’s Manliest Cities” Study

No more debates. Guys across the country now know exactly how manly their city is, with the release of the second annual Combos “America’s Manliest Cities” study. This year, Charlotte, North Carolina claims the top spot, while last year’s manliest city, Nashville, Tennessee, dropped to fourth in the rankings. Chicago had the biggest move in the rankings, going from 46th in 2009 to seventh this year. The study is commissioned by Combos in partnership with Bert Sperling, the research expert behind the popular “Best Places to Live” studies.

The Combos “America’s Manliest Cities” study ranks 50 major metropolitan areas, using manly criteria like the number of home improvement stores, steak houses, pickup trucks and motorcycles per capita. Portland, Oregon ranked last in this year’s study.
