Six B.C. cities top list for most romantic spots in Canada

Victoria, Abbotsford, and North Vancouver are among the Top 20.

Love is in the air in B.C., with six cities cracking the top 20 most romantic places in Canada.

That’s according to Amazon.ca, based on sales of “romantic goods” from relationship books to romance novels (both print and Kindle editions), romantic comedies, jewelry and sexual wellness products.

Victoria ranked first again for the fifth time in a row for the highest amount of romance-related online shopping.

Abbotsford was right behind, knocking North Vancouver out of second spot from last year to third place.

Prince George came in sixth, while Nanaimo ranked eighth, and Kamloops ranked ninth.

Maple Ridge also made the list for the first time, sitting in the 19th spot.

As for exactly what was purchased in these cities, people in Victoria and Prince George are being deemed hopeless romantics — buying books by romance authors Danielle Steel and Nora Roberts, and the book Me Before You by Jojo Moyes.
