The City of Detroit has been named one of the world’s great places in 2022 by TIME Magazine. The publication released their list of the 50 greatest places in the world this week, and it features “50 extraordinary destinations to explore” in the world.

“Nearly 10 years after Detroit filed for bankruptcy, travelers can now play a role in the city’s vibrant economic recovery by simply driving through. Detroit was recently selected as home of the USA’s first electric-vehicle charging road, solidifying its title once again as the Motor City—but for the modern age,” TIME stated in the article.

TIME also commented on the great food offerings that are budding in the Motor City and other growing aspects of the area.

“Visitors come to Detroit to experience our world-changing music scene, the heartbeat of American innovation, and vibrant culinary possibilities, but they fall in love with the people and the stories of our region,” Visit Detroit President and CEO Claude Molinari said in a statement. “Visit Detroit proudly embraces our role in attracting millions of visitors every year, and now that TIME has named Detroit one of the World’s Greatest Places, we look forward to welcoming even more.”

Only five cities in the U.S. made the list. In addition to Detroit, those included Park City, Utah; Miami, San Francisco; and Portland, Oregon.
