"Most Romantic Cities:" Milwaukee ranked third -- just in time for Valentine's Day

MILWAUKEE -- Just in time for Valentine's Day -- Milwaukee has been ranked as one of the top five "Most Romantic Cities in America." In fact, Milwaukee is #3 on the list.

The list was created by OpenTable, the world’s leading provider of online restaurant reservations.

According to OpenTable officials, the "Most Romantic Cities Index" was calculated using three variables: the percentage of restaurants rated “romantic” according to OpenTable diner reviews, the percentage of tables seated for two, and the percentage of people who dined out for Valentine’s Day last year.

“For generations, people have celebrated love by sharing a meal at enchanting, elegant restaurants,” said Caroline Potter, Chief Dining Officer of OpenTable. “The cities on this list, from the charming coastal community that is Virginia Beach to the top dining destination of Chicago, are those in which deliciously romantic dinners are de rigueur for couples in all stages of courtship.”
