I guess the first time I ever did it was when I was backpacking through Europe in 1968, I would stop for a week maybe before moving on, sometimes waiting for a visa or a ferry, but in Bucharest Romania, I met a girl, and stayed for two months, until my visa expired.

Berlin for 2 and a half months, more or less. I was dating a girl who lives there and had the summer off from school and work.

I wouldn't count a stay where you left the city for a day trip to an attraction in the same region--for example if you visited San Francisco for a week but spent a day in Napa and then returned to San Francisco that evening, that still counts as a continuous stay in San Francisco as you returned the same day.
Five months in Tokyo. Though I did have to leave briefly for immigrations reasons. So actually 3 months + 2 months.

Three months in Cape Coral Florida on a home exchange. They got our home in Mesa AZ on the desert while we got their home on the canal.

Coicidentally, that's exactly where we are right now. We liked the area so much we arranged fir a 2 week home exchange in Cape Coral for our new digs in Raleigh NC,

I guess my honeymoon, at the Grand Hyatt, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands, nine days. Earlier I posted that it was sleepaway camp but that really doesn't count.
