Video: CBS Anchor Surprised Detroit Is a Suggested Travel Spot





Travel journalist Peter Greenberg recently spoke on "CBS This Morning" about great destinations such as Portugal, Malta and Chile.

A few minutes into his presentation, anchor Alex Wagner says: "Detroit, Michigan -- why is this on the list?"

Greenberg retorts:

Motor City is back. After decades of neglect, they've come back. They've restored all the buildings. They've restored all the parks. There's a great restaurant scene along the river. Yes, they've got a great baseball team. . . .

They are really coming back in a big way.

Yes, his description is a bit over the top. All buildings aren't restored, but many downtown and in Brush Park, Woodbridge, Midtown and Corktown have been.

In any event, Detroiters will take the flattery.
