Diane Alter – Fourth Estate Cooperative Reporter

Oklahoma City, OK, United States (4E) – Oklahoma City has been dubbed “America’s Manliest City” in the fourth annual Combo’s “America’s Manliest Cities” list.

Conducted by New Jersey-based Mars Chocolate, in conjunction with research expert Bert Sperling, the list ranks the 50 largest U.S. metropolitan areas using a scale that takes into account the number of home improvement stores, steak houses and “manly” occupations per capita.

Cities stood to lose points if they had too many “girly” or feminine factors, such as a high number of nail salons or high-end retail boutiques.

Topping the list as America’s Manliest City is Oklahoma City. Columbia, S.C. was ranked second and Memphis landed at No.3.

Nashville, Tenn., ranked first last year, dropped to fourth. Rounding out the top five was Birmingham. Ala.

Ranked No. 50, making it the least manly state in the study, was San Diego.
