Travel News: “Most Romantic Cities In America” by CultureMap Houston


Also in the spirit of this day of love, I thought that I would share this article on the most romantic cities in the United States.  The original list is courtesy of Amazon who determined the list in the following manner:

“The cities were determined by compiling sales data of romance novels and relationship books (both Kindle and print); romantic comedy movies (digital and DVDs); a collection of romantic music, including Dean Martin, Barry White, Luther Vandross, Maxwell and Miguel (CDs and MP3s); as well as the sales of sexual wellness products, among cities with more than 100,000 residents. Sales were tabulated from Jan. 1, 2013.”

I love lists like this, but I think that this analysis resulted in some very interesting inclusions.  I am totally thrown by Round Rock, TX being on this list but no New Orleans, LA.  That does not make much sense to me.  Round Rock is a small town outside of Austin, TX known for being the home of DELL Computers and affordable housing, but not much more than that.  And while I think that San Antonio is a fun city to visit, especially for a night on the River Walk, there is just no way that it trumps New Orleans or even Santa Barbara.  And where is Charleston, SC too?

But Seattle is a great choice.  What other cities do you think should be included?
