Springfield is getting some love from MSN.

An article titled “The Most Romantic City in Every State” places Springfield at the top of the list in Missouri.

Though the article doesn’t go into detail about how cities were selected, it does say the choices weren’t random. “It is based on multiple surveys and rankings done by several travel-oriented publications, including a study by Amazon.”

The article goes on to describe Springfield as a “regional hub with large city amenities and small town hospitality” with plenty to see and do.

Springfield and Branson also are lauded as a great travel destination in an article that has appeared in more than 130 online media outlets in recent weeks. “These destinations aren’t ‘hot,’ but they’re ‘cool’” says the area is a good family getaway thanks to Wonders of Wildlife, Silver Dollar City and other attractions.

How sweet is that!?
