According to data compiled by Amazon.com, I live in the most romantic city in the US. San Antonio earned that designation because of the number of romance novels and relationship books along with certain movies and music ordered from Amazon.com during 2013.
I’m not sure that’s the best way to determine how romantic a city is. Maybe if the residents were busily engaged in romance, they wouldn’t have time to read or watch movies about love. I certainly read more as a widow than I did when my husband was alive. As much as I love to read, I loved spending time with Jack more.
San Antonio is a romantic city, with our beautiful Riverwalk and many other lovely and fun places. But I’d say it’s a romantic city because people are in love, and lovers have many opportunities to do romantic things together.
What do you think makes a city romantic? Do you live in one of the top 20 romantic cities on Amazon’s list or in a city you consider romantic even if it’s not on the list?
