The 20 worst city mottos in the Detroit area


Many of our area’s municipalities seem to celebrate their identity as bedroom communities, such as Huntington Woods, aka “City of Homes.” Several cities employ the tagline “A Great Place to Live, Work, and Play" — such a caricature of 1950s suburbia that it's easy to smirk at.

But some of them prompt unintended amusement, and that’s what this list is for. It was compiled with some of the very best research that can be done in an afternoon, and we apologize in advance for any taglines or sayings that are incorrectly taken to be mottos.
