April 8, 2014 Destination North America No Comments Email Email

Atlantic City has been bestowed the honor as the 4th Most Romantic City in the United States by OpenTable, a leading provider of online restaurant reservations that connects diners with more than 30,000 restaurants worldwide.

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

Atlantic City ranked higher than several major cities, such as Philadelphia, PA; Los Angeles, CA; Miami, FL; and Boston, MA; among many others.  San Antonio, TX; St. Louis, MO; and Providence, RI ranked first, second and third, respectively.
