How manly are the men of Phoenix? A little manlier than last year.
The men of Phoenix are ranked 25, seven spots higher than last year.
What do the men in the valley think of this honor?
First, what makes a city manly? Well, according to snack food company Mars, which sponsored the ranking, it's the number of home improvement stores, steak houses, and manly occupations like construction workers and cowboys.
Patrick Frawley considers Phoenix a very manly city.
"It's an outdoor city. The weather is nice year round, you go out in the desert, its motorcycle rides, 4-wheel drive, fishing, hunting you name it it's the king of manly."
You could call Frawley Arizona's Indiana Jones. He leads adventurous tourists and locals in Hummers through the desert in the day and night.
There are even UFO tours. It's a manly job.
"You are out in this kind of heat, braving the environment of the desert, telling people how to survive in this desert. We are responsible for 10 lives every time we go out."
He thinks Phoenix should be ranked higher.
The least manliest city, surprisingly, is San Diego according to the rankings.
But with all those Marines, Navy fighter pilots and the Navy Seals based in the area, the snack food company may want to rethink that.
Other manly factors in the ranking include the sale of salty snacks.
The more salty snacks they eat, the manlier they are.
