Maintaining its No. 4 spot for the second year, Philadelphia was out-romanced by Boston — who took the No. 1 spot for the second year — and Atlanta and Austin. On the unfortunate, other side of the spectrum was Orlando, Raleigh, and Indianapolis, which clocked in as the three least romantic cities.
To determine the ranking, Instacart tracked relative spikes in “romantic” search terms by millions of consumers on both its app and website on the week of Valentine’s Day, which included chocolate, flowers, candy, strawberries, champagne, valentine, truffle, cookies, dessert, roses, and wine.
Other cities that made the top romantic list were Charlotte, Oakland, Washington D.C., and Chicago.
