Amazon publishes the most romantic cities in the US ahead of Valentine's Day

An interesting tidbit from Amazon. Based on the number of romance pbooks and Kindle books plus romantic comedy DVDs sold and sexual health books sold this past year, among cities with over 100,000 population, the 20 most romantic cities in the US are...

1. Knoxville, Tenn.
2. Alexandria, VA.
3. Springfield, MO.
4. Orlando, FL
5. Cincinnati, OH

and 15 more.

http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix....019&highlight=

The least romantic city is New York City, NY. Who knew?

I would not consider Orlando a romantic city. But, then again I am not enamored with Disney and the other Theme Parks.

Does this mean the internet is finally running out of top ___ list ideas? This is idiotic.

I think they have the list backwards. Those are the least romantic cities. The fact that people read so many romances and watch RomCom DVDs is to escape from the absence of romance.

Going to a city for a romantic atmosphere is like running a jackhammer to relax.

So true. To me a romantic place would be locations like the mountains, a quiet beach or a semi deserted island. Or just the two of us home alone.

Why limit yourself to just two?

I have a hard time inserting any US city into that list with a straight face:

When I think "romance" I think:

Atlanta?
Chicago?
New York?
Los Angeles?
Topeka?
Houston?
Burlington?
Tallahassee?
Richmond?
Cleveland?
Little Rock?


A few cities in Italy would fit the bill, and maybe Paris. And Barcelona. There are probably a few others.

But most of Europe comes up dry, too:

Hamburg?
Manchester?
Antwerp?
Lille?
Krakow?
Stuttgart?
Brussels?
Zurich?
