Here's what Metropolis Tourism says about being the adopted home of Superman:

Where heroes and history meet on the shores of the majestic Ohio River.  This All-American town has been a must visit destination for Superman fans since being authorized by National Periodicals (D.C. Comics) to be known as the adopted "Home of Superman" in January 1972.  Metropolis has become more than a comic fan Mecca.  With world-renown events that celebrate the history, hunting and yes, Superman; as well as, an action packed casino  and outdoor wonders that take you through the Shawnee National Forest or even under water through a Boeing 727 Airplane, Metropolis is a town that has been added to many bucket lists!

This YouTube video really highlights some of the great spots in Metropolis, and all you can find to do there.
