ATLANTA -- Atlanta's gotten manlier in the past year, according to an annual study by Mars Chocolate North America.

Men in the Big Peach are ranked 16th most manly city in the United States, moving up six spots from 23rd last year.

Mars said its 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.
