Have you thought of the perfect Valentine’s Day story? Have you named your characters? Maybe all you need is the name of the town it takes place in. Listed below are the names of towns that would be fitting for tales that take place on or around Valentine’s Day.

Whether you write romance or historical fiction, mysteries or thrillers, horror, science fiction, or fantasy, I’m sure you can find the name of a town listed to meet your needs.

The states are listed alphabetically, and under each state name, the towns are listed alphabetically. This should satisfy all of you who, like me, are OCD about things like that.

Writing Prompts
Write a story showing why each town was given its romantic name.  Was there a story of love behind it?  Or was the name based on a murder, robbery, kidnapping, or other crime?  Or maybe it was just a name that the person whose decision it was liked.  For instance, Lover’s Leap, California.  Is there a place in the town where lovers used to commit suicide?  If so, why?

I’m sure you noticed that many of the cities listed above are named after flowers.  Why not write a romantic mystery where flowers aid in the solving of the crime or the capture of the killer?

Whatever genre you prefer to write in, why not create a game out of it?  Have your characters go on a hunt (what they are hunting for would depend on the genre), one that leads them all over the United States from one romantic city to the next.
