Midwest…Romance Fans?

Credit for this find goes to the wonderful Amanda Lawson, who posted this link on Facebook just a few moments ago.

Before you look below, if I asked you to start listing out romantic cities in the U.S., how long would it take you to get to the Midwest? I imagine most people without really thinking about it would say New York City, maybe Miami (if you’ve never lived there…), and possibly Chicago would come up, along with a number of other big cities.

But would you ever get to La Crosse, Wisconsin?

Probably not, but RedBox thinks you’d be quite wrong.

Acc0rding to this post at their RedBlog, La Cross, Wisconsin is the most romantic city in America. Laredo, Texas is the least romantic city.

And guess which city comes in at #2? Green Bay, Wisconsin!

Yes folks, cheese is a more mighty aphrodisiac than you probably thought.

Other Midwest cities in the top 10: Ames, Iowa (#3); Cedar Rapids, Iowa (#4); Wausau, Wisconsin (#6); Grand Rapids-Kalamazoo, Michigan (#7); Fargo, ND (#8), which we’ll count because of Drew Lange; Madison, Wisconsin (#9); and Mankato, Minnesota (#10).

Shocked aren’t you?

You may be wondering what the criteria was. Well it was pretty simple: most and least romantic comedies rented in 2011. So pick that apart as a means for determining the most and least romantic cities. Details, details.

The Midwest rules, and this is just one more reason why (says the guy who moved to Texas…).

  1. I know Green Bay is pretty and all, but I can't help but wonder if they confused romance with drunk passionate Packer fans who love their team…and anything cheese and beer related. Just sayin'.

  2. I have read so many articles regarding the blogger lovers except this piece
    of writing is in fact a nice article, keep it up.

  3. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon on a daily
    basis. It will always be useful to read through articles from other writers and practice a little something from other web sites.

  4. Appreciating the persistence you put into your website and detailed information you
    offer. It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated
    rehashed material. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS
    feeds to my Google account.
