Sherwood Park ranked eighth most romantic city in Canada by Amazon Canada.
 
Each year, Amazon Canada unveils a list of 20 most romantic cities in Canada based on purchase information related to romantic products.
 
"We talk about the county being a good place to live, these recreational facilities, employment opportunities, business opportunities, but also it's a place of natural beauty," said Strathcona County mayor Rod Frank.
 
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, Frank encouraged couples to have a staycation, rather than driving to Banff or Jasper.
 
Other Alberta cities on the list include: Fort McMurray (5), Spruce Grove (6), Grand Prairie (15) and Airdrie (16).
 
Victoria, British Columbia topped the list for a sixth year in a row.
