“The city has been lauded as of late for its cultural renaissance (including by Architectural Digest), with companies like Shinola and a slew of new hotels, restaurants, and galleries returning focus to a city that was once the epicenter of American industrialism. A pride of place and a dedication to upholding this reputation make the future bright for Detroit — no doubt it will more than live up to UNESCO’s standards.“ – UNESCO’s 1st American City of Design

 

2017 may be the year promise becomes reality. The new QLine streetcar is expected to open in April, connecting the central Woodward Avenue corridor some 3.3 miles between downtown and the revived New Center area. It passes through Midtown, home to the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the entertainment-focused District Detroit, where a stadium opening this fall will be shared by the Detroit Red Wings and, in a return from the suburbs, the Detroit Pistons.” – The New York Times‘s 52 Places to Go in 2017

 

“In a few short years, Detroit has gone from being a cautionary tale to a success story… Almost 100 new restaurants, along with breweries and distilleries, opened in the past two years (such as Detroit Water Ice Factory, a dessert shop from writer Mitch Albom, and Kuzzo’s Chicken & Waffles, former NFL cornerback Ron Bartell’s effort to continue to revamp the Livernois Avenue of Fashion), with more on the way. Now that retailers like John Varvatos and Carhartt have opened outposts in the city, and Nike is making plans to join the fray, Detroit might not be able to sell its comeback story for much longer — it’s decidedly back.” – Travel+Leisure‘s Best Places to Travel

 

“Wait, Detroit? Yes. The city better known as a center for automakers and manufacturing is revving its culinary motors.” – National Geographic‘s 6 Unexpected Cities for the Food Lover

 

The exodus is over. Let the pilgrimage begin. Welcome to Detroit, where an image of urban gardens, riverfront cycling, and warehouse lofts inhabited by hip 20-somethings is beginning to erase one of burned-out homes and the urban porn of once-grand buildings left in ruins.” – London Free Press – “From sports to the arts to the auto industry, Motown is drawing a new generation of fans”

“Detroit is a rapidly changing city. In 2016, it’s all about learning and family fun with the opening of a new Legoland, a comprehensive Beatles exhibit, and an expansion to the Sea Life Michigan Aquarium.” – USA Today‘s 14 Places in America You Have to Visit

 

“Boom and bloom have shattered the Motor City’s gloom-and-doom reputation. Super-charged vital signs include a white-hot urban art scene, homegrown jazz, R&B, funk and electronic virtuosos, sensational bargain-priced food, coffee and craft beer, a fresh new riverfront, a greenway where lush foliage competes with street art-splashed concrete slabs, new urban bike and kayak tours, and friendly residents excited to share their cultural riches.” – The Dallas Morning News – If you’re not turned on by Detroit’s new energy, you’d better check your pulse”
