Alexandria, Virginia is the most romantic city in the US according to Amazon.com.

Amazon’s annual list of the Top 20 Most Romantic Cities in the U.S. is determined by the amount of romantic-themed purchases such as music, movies, romance novels, relationship books, and other romance products.

Here’s the top 10:

  1.  Alexandria, Virginia
  2.  Miami, Florida
  3.  Knoxville, Tennesee
  4.  Orlando, Florida
  5.  Vancouver, Washington
  6.  Cincinnati, Ohio
  7.  Columbia, S.C.
  8.  Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
  9.  Round Rock, Texas

The list is compiled by taking sales data into account in cities with more than 100,000 residents on a per capita basis. Alexandria was also ranked No.1 in 2010 and 2011.

The state’s tourism slogan is “Virginia is for Lovers”, and it turns out Amazon agrees.
