2023 is here! Where has the time gone? America has changed a lot. With COVID finally proven to be a hoax unless typing that will get me in trouble, the world is our oyster once again. 10 years ago, when men graduated college they moved to Austin, TX and worked a job in tech sales until they saved up enough money to start a brewery. Nowadays, Austin has become California, and there are few if any houses/street corners for young men to set up shop. So where do men like us go to sew their wild oats? Here are 6 surprisingly fun cities where real men can make a fantastic living.

Medford, Oregon
Population: 82,098

Real men appreciate nature, and there's no place better to become one with the land than in Medford, Oregon. Locations such as Rogue River, Medford Railroad Park, Natural Bridge Loop, and Diamond Lake are just handful of the mindblowingly beautiful places to spend a day in the trees. 

If you're more of a city boy, downtown Medford is slowly morphing into a booming metropolis, where men of all ages can eat, shop, and play. You can spend an Italian themed evening at Pomodori Osteria & Bar. Or a Mexican evening at Elements Tapas Bar. If neither of those are quite your speed, try out Misoya Bistro for an authentically Asian experience. 

Another fun thing about Medford is that the forests surrounding the city have an unusually high rate of Bigfoot sightings. Get the boys together and take a Bigfoot tour to visit the exact locations of some of the most high profile Bigfoot sightings in the Pacific Northwest. If you're lucky, you might see a Bigfoot of your very own.

Texarkana, Arkansas
Population: 36,733

Located directly on the boarder of Texas & Arkansas, Texarkana provides young men with the unique opportunity to be standing in 2 states at the same time. 

Nightlife in Texarkana comes down to 2 incredible establishments: Village Station & Fusion Nightclub. Village Station is known for having the best drag shows in all of Arkansas, whereas Fusion Nightclub is the perfect place for men who are much too macho and manly for men dressed as women. 

If you feel like getting out of Texarkana for the day, take the 15 minute drive down the road to Fouke, Arkansas. Fouke is the location where The Legend of Boggy Creek was filmed. For those unfamiliar, The Legend of Boggy Creek is a movie about a reported Bigfoot attack in the late 1800's. Fouke is widely recognized as the Bigfoot capital of the Midwest.

Ashland, Ohio
Population: 19,225

As larger Ohio cities such as Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati begin to fill up, men have found a nice middle ground in the central Ohio town of Ashland. Ashland has a little bit of everything - restaurants, bars, churches, golf course, movie theatre, etc. 

Grandpa's Cheesebarn is a unique place where men gather late night to sober up with some cheese before their dark drive home. Gleaner Antique Shop is a fun place where you can purchase a cool conversation starter to put on your shelf, or a cool conversation starter to put on your coffee table. 

In May of 2021 in Ashland, Ohio, a woman leaving the gym heard a branch snap in the distance. She looked up and witnessed a tall creature standing over 7 feet tall covered head to toe in grey fur. It was far too large, and moved far too quick to be human. Famed Bigfoot investigator, Matt Moneymaker confirmed that this woman had likely encountered a Bigfoot

Bloomingdale, Ohio
Population: 146

Few men would ever think to make a life in Bloomingdale, but there are 146 really awesome people who live there. Located right off the Bloomingdale exit off of Route 22, Bloomingdale is a place where you can make $40k a year working from home and retire by the age of 50. A spirited rivalry between the competing grocery stores on both ends of town makes for a competitive atmosphere at the annual slow pitch softball game. 

On July 9, 2021, Jim Thompson noticed that 5 of his chickens were missing. The coop was full of feathers, but there was no blood to be found anywhere. After doing a perimeter check, he noticed a footprint nearly 2 feet long and 1 foot wide. Later that month he came across 4 more footprints. Matt Moneymaker theorizes that this was the same Bigfoot spotted in Ashland, Ohio just 2 months prior. He was likely making his way to New York State.

Batavia, New York
Population: 14,490

If the Bigfoot seen in Bloomingdale was making his way to New York State, then there is a good chance he ended up in Batavia. Bigfoot's have been sighted in Batavia in 1960, 1980, and most recently in 2006. That's roughly every 20 years, which means we are nearly due for another sighting.

If you fancy a game of chance, bet the horses or slap the slots at Batavia Downs Racetrack & Casino. On a hot or cold day, have a splash and catch a disease at Palm Island Indoor Waterpark. If you're looking for other things to do, the Batavia, New York Information Center will point you in the right direction.

Inverness, Scotland
Population: 46,870

Do you like to golf? With so many pro golfers leaving the PGA Tour for a league run by wealthy Saudi Arabians, there are more open spots on the PGA Tour than ever before. Set up shop in Inverness and dedicate your life to the game. Inverness is home to some of the world's most beautiful courses. Look no further than historic Inverness Golf Club for an unforgettable experience on the links.

Scottish pubs are places that never get old no matter how many times you've been to the same one. They are dark, dingy, smelly, and damp. Some date back as far as the 1300's. Many Scottish pubs serve exclusively warm beer.

Not a golfer? Luckily for you, Inverness is a short drive away from Loch Ness. As I am sure you are aware, Loch Ness is home to The Loch Ness Monster (aka Nessie). There have only been a handful of Loch Ness Monster sightings over the last couple of centuries. The brave man who is finally able to wrangle in Nessie will be a national hero.

Kathmandu, Nepal (India)
Population: 1,521,057

If you've made it this far in the list, then you are a man who is looking for something different. Bars, restaurants, golf, Bigfoot hunting, and Loch Ness Monster hunting doesn't move the needle for you. 

But have you considered Yetis? There have been multiple reported Yeti sightings by members of the Indian Army. Simply enlist in the Indian Army. It's probably not that difficult. Dedicate your life to defending the good people of India, until you eventually capture a Yeti.
