Manhattan, Boston and Downtown Pittburgh after the first big snow, and before the streets are plowed.

yeah, seeing all those crackheads and homeless sleeping on the street (highest ratio in the US) is definitely romantic.
Right, we should all be listing (LOL!) Toronto, right? Get in line behind the Cleveland honk and start preparing your arguments

While it isn't the most polished small city, but due to its sunsets off of Lake Ontario and history, Oswego NY:

Savannah has a lot of beauty, but so does Cleveland. Just because it doesn't come to many people's minds doesn't mean that it isn't romantic. A lot of people have an inaccurate picture of Cleveland. Come to the Cleveland Orchestra at Blossom or Severance Hall, take a walk along Lake Erie at sunset, go to the Cleveland Museum of Art and University Circle, eat at a bistro in Tremont, check out our beautiful 1920s art-deco architecture and tell me that it's not romantic. Cleveland may have a blue collar flavor, but it still has all the elements that make a place romantic.
Sounds like you have never been to New Orleans...have you been to Audubon Park? Or Christmas in the Oaks in City Park during the Holiday season? The Garden District of Uptown, Magazine Street, The Fly, Freret Street? There are plenty of quiet, charming and romantic areas in the Big Easy; you just have to venture out of the tourist traps to see them.

They are, and are certainly worth a visit. But they are still VERY touristy.

Greenville, South Carolina seems like a nice town.
