Photos: Ten manliest Colorado cities
What does manliness mean in the 21st century? According to our friends at the real estate blog for Movoto, who've compiled a list of Colorado's ten manliest cities, it's a combination of things. Like steakhouses. And cigar shops. And gun stores.

Grand Junction was a cut above Colorado's other cities when it came to barber shops per capita, followed by Littleton and Denver.
Number 9: Lafayette
