Alexandria, Virginia, is the most romantic city in the United States, if Amazon.com sales are any indication.

Amazon.com is the world’s largest online retailer, according to data from the National Retail Federation.

The publicly traded company compiles its list of the most romantic cities based on per capita sales data from cities with a population of more than 100,000. The sales data include purchases of:

  • Romance novels and relationship books (both Kindle and print)
  • Romantic comedy movies (DVDs and digital)
  • A a curated list of romantic music, including artists such as Barry White, Maxwell, Miguel and Luther Vandross (CDs and MP3 format);
  • Sexual wellness products

In addition to Alexandria, a few other cities in this year’s top 20 stand out based on Amazon’s findings:

  • Knoxville, Tennessee, has ranked in the top three for five consecutive years now.
  • Miami purchased the most sexual wellness products.
  • Four cities in Washington state made the list: Vancouver, Everett, Seattle and Bellevue.

  1. Alexandria, Virginia
  2. Miami

  4. Orlando, Florida
  5. Vancouver, Washington
