How Does Your City Inspire Love and Romance?
From a proposal under the Eiffel Tower to a first date at the corner malt shop, cities inspire love and romance across the globe.
Here in Minnesota, we know all about the romance of cities. After all, St. Paul was just named the most romantic city in the country by USA Today readers. But one hardly needs to visit the Capitol City to find sweet nothings in the air.
Couples can watch a sunset from a lakeshore vista in Grand Marais, or ride tandem along winding bike paths through Lanesboro. Sweethearts can sip a locally grown dessert wine in Cannon Falls or split dessert at the most romantic restaurant in the state, found in Alexandria.
So, Minnesota cities—we want to hear from you. How does your city inspire love and romance? Share your city’s romantic gems in the comments. What's your most scenic photo op, sweetest street to stroll, most charming public park, romantic restaurant or heart-warming treat shop? Share the love! And of course, let's keep it PG ;)
The City Spot
P.S. What makes a city lovable? Peter Kageyama, author of “For the Love of Cities,” will share his insights as the keynote speaker at the 2014 Annual Conference in St. Cloud. During his address, he’ll explore the role of the most powerful of motivators—the human heart—in our toolkit for city-making.
