Top 10 Most Handsome Cities In The U.S
Top 10 Most Handsome Cities In The U.S

Prepare for some ego deflation, unless you reside in Seattle.

According to a recent survey by the distributor of grooming products Grooming Lounge, men in the Emerald City are the most attractive in the entire country.

Another major shock: Los Angeles, Chicago, and Miami failed to place in the top 10.

"How the hell did that happen?" citizens of the snubbed cities might ask. Grooming Lounge based its rankings on a number of factors, including men's levels of fitness (as determined by the 2015 American Fitness Index Report), as well as how much money men spend on things like personal care products, services, and apparel.

Although subjective, the criteria used in this survey gauge the men's commitment to appearance in each city, according to the website. (And yes, a website that sells grooming products gives shops where people can purchase them higher ratings. Not too surprising.)

The capital of Hennepin County and the most populous city in the U.S. state of Minnesota is Minneapolis. It is the 46th most populous city in the US as of 2019, with an estimated 429,606 residents. The Twin Cities, which include Saint Paul and Minneapolis, are spread across seven counties. In 2019, those counties are among the sixteen that make up the 3.6 million-person Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington MN-WI metropolitan area, and the twenty-two that make up the 4.0 million-person combined statistical area, making it the sixteenth-largest metropolitan area in the country.

Near Saint Paul, the state's capital, Minneapolis is located on both banks of the Mississippi River, just north of the point where the Mississippi meets the Minnesota River. The city is extremely water rich, with thirteen lakes, wetlands, the Mississippi River, creeks, and waterfalls, many of which are connected by parkways in the Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway. It also has one of the best park systems in the country. Between Chicago and Seattle, the city and its surroundings have the largest population and are home to the majority of businesses. The world's capital for flour milling, Minneapolis began as a market for timber in the past and has maintained its financial clout to this day.

Georgia, a state in the United States, has Atlanta as its capital and largest city. It is the 37th most populous city in the US, with a projected 2019 population of 506,811. With more than six million residents and ranking as the ninth-largest metropolitan area in the country, the city serves as the social, cultural, and economic hub of the Atlanta metropolitan area. The most populous county in Georgia, Fulton County, has its seat in Atlanta. Atlanta has a distinctive topography that includes rolling hills and the most extensive urban tree cover in the United States. It is located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.

Atlanta was first established as the end of a significant state-sponsored railroad. However, due to its quick growth, it soon became the point of convergence for several railroads, accelerating its development. The name of the city is derived from that of the nearby depot of the Western and Atlantic Railroad, denoting the town's expanding status as a major transportation hub. General William T. Sherman's March to the Sea during the American Civil War nearly completely destroyed the city. The city, however, quickly rose from the ashes to become the unofficial capital of the "New South," a national hub of commerce.

Martin Luther King Jr., Ralph David Abernathy, and many other residents of Atlanta played significant roles in the movement's leadership during the 1950s and 1960s, when Atlanta emerged as a major organizing hub for the civil rights movement. Since 1998, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has been the busiest airport in the world by passenger traffic, giving Atlanta international prominence as a significant air transportation hub.

The capital and largest city of the U.S. state of Tennessee is Nashville. The city, which is on the Cumberland River, serves as the county seat of Davidson County. It ranks as the 23rd most populous city in the country.

The city was established in 1779 and was given the name Francis Nash in honor of the Continental Army general who served during the American Revolution. Due to its advantageous location as a port on the Cumberland River and, in the 19th century, a railroad hub, the city expanded quickly. During the American Civil War, Nashville split from Tennessee; in 1862, it was the first Confederate state capital to fall to Union forces. The city regained its position after the war and established a manufacturing base.

Nashville has had a two-tiered system of consolidated city-county government since 1963, which includes six smaller municipalities. The city is run by a mayor, a vice-mayor, and a 40-member metropolitan council, of which 35 are chosen at-large and the remaining five from single-member districts. Nashville is home to the Middle Tennessee Supreme Court Courthouse, one of the three divisions of the state, reflecting the city's status in state government.
