For the second year in a row, Guelph has been named Ontario’s most romantic city by online retailer Amazon.ca. We are the second most romantic place in the whole country – an improvement over last year’s fourth-place ranking.
The criteria may not be entirely scientific – it’s based on Amazon.ca sales data of romance novels, sex and relationship books, romantic comedy DVDs and Michael Buble CDs. But I don’t doubt its validity. After all, with its scenic rivers and historic architecture, Guelph seems built for romance.
So there are no excuses this Valentine’s Day – let’s get out and show our stripes as the romance capital of Ontario!
