Just in time for Valentine's Day (ugh, thanks Hallmark), Foursquare has determined that we're the fourth-most romantic city in the country. This information was gleaned by searching more than 1.5 billion check-ins made by couples on the social media system at typically romantic places such as wine bars, flower shops, lingerie shops and French restaurants. Quick aside: Does Pepe Le Pew own Foursquare?
Lest you doubt the validity of the findings, please note that Lake Buena Vista, Florida finished first. That probably has more than a little to do with Lake Buena Vista
being wholly owned by the Walt Disney Company. It's a resort town for the nearby theme parks, and is nothing but hotels, restaurants, wine shops and boutiques. Way to game the system, Lake Buena Vista.
Which city finished dead-last?
Beaverton, Oregon is the least-romantic city in the country. Huh. I'm pretty sure they filmed Bunny Lebowski's Logjammin'
there. What's more romantic than that?Hat tip to Kholood for pointing this out
