The city of Detroit has been bringing in the travel accolades recently, and travel website Expedia just named it one of the "15 under-the-radar cities you need to visit."

"These 15 cities fly just under the radar, keeping their awesomeness close to the vest. Some you may know more than others, but all the cities on this list offer many surprising sights and experiences," the website writes.

Detroit was named the best under-the-radar city for environmentalists, with Expedia writing:

Detroit is seeing a revitalization, and much of that is in the public gardens and green spaces. Enjoy the trees and gardens of Detroit Riverfront Conservancy. The natural education programs of the Greening of Detroit are helping the city to find its environmental voice, and you can learn about green living and local food at their Live Love Local Celebration. Spend some time in Lafayette Greens urban garden, and score fresh goods at Eastern Market. For an unforgettable meal, go to Townhouse, where the greenhouse-like setting and twinkling lights enchant.

Other cities on the list include: 

  • Cary, N.C.
  • Bisbee, Ariz.
  • Rochester, Minn.
  • Walla Walla, Wash.
  • Fort Myers, Fla.
  • Corpus Christi, Texas
  • Boise, Idaho
  • Dallas
  • Sioux Falls, S.D.
  • Madison, Wisc.
  • Natchitoches, La.
  • Worcester, Mass.
