With its bankruptcy, high crime and unemployment rates, and pockets or urban decay, the Detroit metro isn’t everyone’s pick city for vacation travel.

That’s so, so wrong, says the online news site Deadline Detroit, which offers “16 Reasons to Go to Detroit Right Now.”

And the No. 2 reason?

The cappuccino at Pinwheel Bakery in Ferndale. The coffee drink “not only qualifies as solidly good, but for those interested, it can come paired with any number of their baked goods that sit next to the cash register and call to you.”

Deadline Detroit isn’t done loving Ferndale.

The No. 13 reason to make metro Detroit a destination is The Rust Belt Market, an indoor market featuring the work of numerous Detroit artists.

Love it, don’t you?
