Columbus is romantic. Or not. A tale of two surveys

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Columbus either is – or isn’t – one of the nation’s most romantic cities, depending on whose Valentines Day-related survey you choose to believe.

OpenTable.com ranks the city fifth on its list of the top 25 amorous cities based on the percentage of romantic restaurants, tables for two and people who ate out on Valentine’s Day last year.

But Amazon.com doesn’t even include Columbus ion its Top 20, which is based on sales of romance novels, romantic comedy movies and romantic music.

Cincinnati (#5) and Dayton (#7) both finished in the Top 10.

San Antonio was number one on the OpenTable.com survey and Knoxville topped the Amazon.com list, followed by Alexandria, Va., Miami, Orlando and Cincinnati.
