Boise: USA’s Least Romantic City

Feb. 14 is just another bleak winter day in Boise ... at least according to Amazon.com. The City of Trees, which has garnered accolades for its recreation and business climate, has another distinction today: America's least romantic city. In time for Valentine's Day, Amazon.com revealed its annual list of the 20 most romantic cities in the United States (Knoxville, Tenn., took the top spot). To crunch the numbers, Amazon compiled sales data of romance novels and relationship books (mostly through Kindle and print books), romantic comedy movies and romantic music sold on the website from Jan. 1, 2012, through Jan. 23, 2013, on a per capita basis in cities with more than 100,000 residents/George Prentiss, Boise Weekly.
