    Detroit is the No. 2 city in the world to visit

    Lonely Planet, one of the largest travel book publishers in the world, is set to name Detroit the second best city in the world to visit in 2018, the latest national distinction in a growing list of them that officials say adds up to a lot of buzz. 
    Even celebrities, such as actor and former rapper Mark Wahlberg, are singing the city’s praises.
    But, even if Detroit wasn’t No. 1 in the Lonely Planet ranking, folks who closely follow these lists said they will gladly take No. 2 — for now. 
    The travel publication’s announcement, set for Tuesday morning, follows a bid by Detroit to become the second headquarters of Seattle-based Amazon.com, and recognition earlier this year by the New York Times that it is a top travel destination.
