CLEARWATER Ė Clearwater has made it as No. 20 on the Amazon.com list of Top 20 Most Romantic Cities in the U.S.
The cities were determined by compiling sales data of romance novels and relationship books bought on both Kindle and print; romantic comedy movies, both digital and DVDs; a collection of romantic movies; as well as the sales of sexual wellness products among cities with more than 100,000 residents. Sales were tabulated from Jan. 1, 2013.
Topping the list in order of rank was San Antonio, Seattle, Knoxville, Tenn., Miami, Alexandria, Va., and Orlando. Clearwater was No. 20.
In the five years that Amazon has announced this list, this is the first time San Antonio has ever made the top 20 list and is the first time since 2010 that Seattle has ranked among the top 20. Knoxville slipped to No. 3 from its top slot two years running. The three least romantic cities on the total list were San Buenaventura, Calif., New York and El Monte, Calif.
