With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, and America’s sweethearts planning to spend an average of $136.57 each on the occasion. The personal-finance website WalletHub has released its report on 2017’s Best Places for Valentine’s Day, and New York City surprisingly doesn’t rank too high.

To determine the most romantic yet affordable cities for celebrating the Day of Hearts, WalletHub’s number crunchers compared 100 of the largest U.S. cities across 20 key metrics, ranging from “florists per capita” to “number of attractions” to “cost of a three-course meal for two.” WalletHub’s article also provides entertaining stats about the holiday in its Valentine’s Day Fun Facts infographic, as pasted below.
