In the past few months, Saint Petersburg has been named one of the most bike-friendlymost depressing and even a top place where people are moving to. . 

Now, the Burg’s name as been added to another list — “The most romantic.”

According to Redbook, St. Petersburg is one of the top romantic destinations for couples in the United States. 

“Moving your bodies and being in nature together makes for an out-of-the-ordinary, feel-good date. Florida’s Gulf Coast is an ideal place to sign up for a couples’ stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) lesson. The new water sport lets you balance on a board that’s more stable than a surfboard while paddling toward an up-close view of the marine life. Lessons at Barefoot Paddler start at just $25. Afterwards, head to the veranda of the Renaissance Vinoy Resort & Golf Club to kick back near one of the fire pits as the city buzzes and boats bob in the marina.”

Other places on the list include, the top of the Empire State building, St. Augustine, Finger Lakes region of upstate New York and even Albuquerque, New Mexico.
