This city has major automobile history, but its food scene couldn’t be more modern.

Detroit, Michigan, will always have its automobiles and Motown hits, but this Midwestern metropolis has also emerged as a dynamic travel destination thanks to the revitalization process that started here over a decade ago. Today, Motor City has a light rail and bike lanes, farm-to-table restaurants and hip craft cocktail bars, unique boutiques and world-class museums — proof positive that Detroit Rock City is, once again, rockin’ and rollin’.
