The other metropolitan areas are the top three manliest cities in the United States, according to Mars Chocolate America's fourth annual COMBOS "America's Manliest Cities," survey.

The study compiles manly city data such as the number of home improvement stores, steak houses and manly occupations per capita. But even if a city has a fair share of manly traits, unmanly or "girly" factors, like a high concentration of nail salons and fancy shopping boutiques can bump cities to the bottom of the list.
