It’s that time of year again. It’s time for, well, “TIME Magazine” to release its list of “The World’s Greatest Places,” and this year, a Michigan hotspot is on the list.
It’s a huge deal for a Michigan town to make this list, since there are only a handful of U.S. cities on it. I mean, I love Michigan, so I’m not surprised to find a Michigan spot on the tally, but to know that it’s considered one of the best cities in not just the U.S. but also the world is pretty cool.
The World’s Greatest Places of 2022 list features TIME’s best spots to visit this year. To determine the list, TIME asked for nominations of places from their international network of correspondents and contributors, especially looking for areas offering new and exciting opportunities.
So, which U.S. cities made the cut? In the U.S., the cities that are considered the best in the world are Park City, Utah; Miami, Florida; San Francisco, California; Portland, Oregon; and – drum roll – Detroit, Michigan. I’m so happy to see Detroit gets lots of love on this list. Of the Motor City, TIME writes, “Newfound glory. 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.”
The City of Detroit is very happy with the showing. They tweeted out, “Detroit is one of only 5 US cities to make The World’s Greatest Places of 2022 list by TIME Magazine. The world is learning what we’ve always known. To the hardworking and resilient Detroiters that make this city great, this is for you! Congrats.”
