HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- It's not only Virginia that is for lovers, so is Harrisonburg.

The Municipal, a magazine, has ranked the city the number two on its list of Top U.S. Towns for Romance.

Abby Long, the owner of Blakemore's Flowers in Harrisonburg, said they expect to have at least 300 plus deliveries to make by Wednesday, which does not count last minute orders.

Long said she was surprised at to see Harrisonburg's ranking; however, she does understand what the city has to offer.

"The restaurant scene downtown is just really impressive, I think there are so many great places to go," said Long.

As for romance, Long and Dan Morgan, one customer plans to surprise his girlfriend, have some advice.

"My girlfriend goes to Bridgewater College so, we're coming down to Harrisonburg, stay at a hotel room, and enjoy dinner," said Morgan.

"There's a little bit of a luxury to them. I mean some people say, oh flowers die, I don't want to waste my money, but maybe that's the romance in it. To show somebody that you love them, money isn't an object," said Long.

And one thing Long recommends is planning ahead, especially if you want to be romantic and get that arrangement in time.
