Love is in the air this month! February is the month for all things mushy and cute and when it comes to destinations, you want to be in the most romantic cities when it's Valentine's Day. Apparently, Amazon Canada knows exactly what Canadian cities are the most loving and they have shared the list with us! That's right, Amazon Canada released a list of the most romantic cities in Canada and these small cities in BC were ranked among the best!
This definitive list of the most romantic cities in Canada is based on comparing the per capita sales of romantic novels, romantic comedies, relationship books, jewelry, and sexual wellness products, all purchased in 2018. According to this list, BC had quite the love-struck year! Who knew buying copies of Pretty Woman on Amazon Prime would pay off?
The top 20 list has once again named Victoria, BC as the most romantic place in Canada. This is the seventh consecutive year the beautiful city has been given this title! Known for its gorgeous weather, beautiful gardens, and all around loving vibe, it’s apparently also the hub to purchase some of your fav romantic comedies. If you ever want to watch Bridget Jones’s Diary, this is the place to do it!
North Vancouver was able to swoop in for the win this year and secure the #4 spot! Vancouver also didn’t do half bad and came in at #15. It may not be top of the list, but hey, at least we made it on!
Altogether, 7 BC cities cracked the top 20 list! Other notable places in the province include Kelowna and Courtenay. In the Lower Mainland, Vancouver, North Vancouver, Langley and surprisingly Port Coquitlam were on the list as well! Special shoutout to Port Coquitlam, BC for making it on the list!
