Sterling Heights Voted Among Least Romantic Cities in the U.S.

Sterling Heights received the honor of being fourth least romantic city in the entire U.S., according to Foursquare users. Do you agree?

Cupid appears to have missed the hearts of Macomb County Foursquare users.

The social network lists Sterling Heights as the fourth least romantic city in the entire United States of America.

Foursquare based its results on more than 1.5 billion check-ins at romantic places such as French restaurants, and lingerie stores.

The title of most romantic city went to Lake Buena Vista, FL—home to Walt Disney World, while Beaverton, OR—home to athletic mega-brand Nike—was named the least romantic.

Although Shelby Township and Utica did not make either of the lists, Shelby has bragging rights to the home of the most romantic restaurant in Macomb County.

Metropolitan Cafe, which is located at 52969 Van Dyke Ave. in Shelby Township, received 54 percent of the votes for most romantic restaurant in our Macomb County weekly .

Petoskey, MI has my vote. Beautiful town by the water where you can relax or submerse yourself in the arts...spectacular!

Of course Sterling Heights was unfairly compared to its sister city Wuthering Heights.
