Ready to find your happy place? Home may be where the heart is, but for many baby boomers, home is also where guests stop by unannounced, "to-do" lists seem to grow longer by the minute and bills crowd the mailbox waiting to be paid.
Sterlings Best Places recently found the top 10 cities in the United States where romance blooms for boomers--no matter what the interruption. Interestingly, Houston came out in the top as the number ten city where the boomer set is finding special moments for romance.
The study evaluated the top 10 cities, of the 50 largest metro areas in the United States, where baby boomers are living life most romantically. For the purposes of this study, "baby boomers" are those aged 45 to 60.
Taking into consideration marriage and divorce rates in each city, as well as the number of great restaurants, dance studios, and chocolate, jewelry and flower sales, Sperling identified the top 10 most romantic cities for boomers.
The top 10 cities in the study had a very high number of married boomers and conversely a very low divorce rate for this generation. These factors weighed heavily, while ballroom dancing, floral, jewelry and candy sales, and great restaurants--some of the ways boomers keep romance in bloom--supplemented the findings.
