Time magazine asked its correspondents and contributors from around the world for nominations, on the greatest places in the world and Detroit, Michigan made the list, focusing on places “offering new and exciting experiences.” Detroit is one of the 50 best places in the world, according to Time, including Park City, Utah; Miami; San Francisco; and Portland, Ore.
Ten 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. The revitalized city has plans for lots of new offerings, especially for food and drink.
Over 500 new hotel rooms are currently in development for lodging. Cambria Hotel, a 158-room downtown hotel featuring Bluetooth mirrors, golf simulators, and the Detroit Taco Company Bodega, will open in late 2022. ROOST Apartment Hotel is preparing to open early next year in Book Tower — just one of Detroit’s iconic buildings currently being restored to its former glory. Visitors shouldn’t miss the summer opening of phase two of the historic $55 million Motown Museum expansion, featuring an outdoor plaza and performance space.

- Midnight Temple
- Chef Max Hardy’s Rosemary Restaurant and What’s Crackin’
- Cambria Hotel (coming soon)
- Detroit Taco Company
