Among the top global travel destinations for 2023, Detroit ranks 10th on the online travel guide’s list of the 50 Best Places to Travel.  Brooke Horrobin writer for writes, “As one of the country’s best-kept secrets, Detroit isn’t overly touristy, so you get the joy of exploring without crazy crowds. Some of the city’s best elements are its architectural history, Motown music, thriving sports scene, art culture, and excellent selection of restaurants, craft breweries, and cocktail bars. Canada is just across the beautiful Detroit river, so make the most out of your trip and visit two countries in one go!” According to Horrobin, Detroit doesn’t have the international recognition of New York City or Los Angeles as it should.
