NAIAS is getting ready to welcome the world. And so is Detroit.
The city was named one of the top 10 cities in the world to visit in 2018 by Lonely Planet, one of the world’s largest travel guidebook publishers. Detroit was the only continental U.S. city selected for the list.
Detroit took the number two spot following behind first-place winner Seville, Spain. As Lonely Planet writes, “Hot on the Spanish city’s heels is the American comeback city Detroit…”
Lonely Planet Managing Editor Alex Howard quoted in the Detroit Free Press said, “’While it’s been on our travel experts’ radar for years now, all the momentum we’ve seen has really put Detroit firmly on the map as a travel destination for both domestic and international travelers.’”
Lonely Planet cited Detroit’s renovated historic hotels, the booming dining scene, the new downtown arena, the QLine and the city’s eclectic mix of cultural, art and music attractions.
