TIME Magazine recently released their yearly curation of "The World's Greatest Places" — And this year, Detroit made the list!

The World's Greatest Places of 2022 features "50 extraordinary destinations to explore." TIME created their list by soliciting nominations from their "international network of correspondents and contributors, with an eye toward those offering new and exciting experiences." The result is a list that spans from the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, to places closer to home in the United States. In fact, Detroit was one of only five U.S. states that made the list. Here's what TIME had to say about the city:

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 revitalized city has plans for lots of new offerings, especially for food and drink. Some of the best: Midnight Temple, an Indian gastropub near Eastern Market; Rosemary, chef Maxcel Hardy’s rosemary-filled café and accompanying cigar lounge called Byrd; What’s Crackin’, a seafood-boil restaurant serving up Great Lakes–caught fish; and Basan, a Japanese robata restaurant.
