Quebec City (if we count Canada)

And if you do count Canada, Montreal is undoubtedly a good spot for romance.

Cleveland, the Paris of the Midwest. (And I'm only half kidding). Our skyline views over the river or lake are beautiful, sunsets over the lake are unbeatable, lots of great little romantic hideaway restaurants in Tremont, Ohio City, and University Circle, and our University Circle area, with museums, concert halls, parks, and restaurants is spectacular, and the site of many a wedding.

Hmmmm.... when I think romantic, Cleveland isn't the first city to come to mind. Do you think perhaps you're being a bit of a homer?

In Cleveland, even the river burns with passion.

All is am going to say is.........OMG



However you do make some good points but unfortunately the title of "Paris of the Midwest" is already taken!

History of Detroit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (see the second paragraph)

Have you ever actually been to Cleveland? It's got lots of gilded age romance, if you know where to look for it. In addition to the gilded age architecture, you have the romance of sunsets over lake Erie, high quality boutique restaurants, beautiful parks, and views of the skyline.

Telluride, CO
Friday Harbor, WA
Cannon Beach, OR
Catalina Island, CA
Santa Fe, NM
Sedona, AZ
St. Augustine, FL
Stowe, VT
Marthas Vineyard or Nantucket
Prince Edward Island


I guess I'm of the persuasion that small towns are a lot more romantic than cites.

Honolulu has too much concrete. I'd go to Maui, now that's romantic!
