However, Pontiac didn't just start as a mecca for haunted houses. Its history begins in 1818, when settlers ventured north of Detroit to find land to turn agricultural products into useful items. In the mid-1800s, the expansion of the railroad increased growth to the area, bringing in both white-collar and blue-collar workers for a variety of jobs, until the city eventually became incorporated in 1861.

Like many towns surrounding Detroit, the city saw a surge in population during the early days of the automotive industry. While growth has slowed, Pontiac still has a vibrant downtown area, offering travelers the opportunity to set up a home base to explore Detroit or enjoy a slice of trendy suburban life.

When to Visit Pontiac, MI

Summer is the most popular month to visit Pontiac, as the temperatures rise into the 80s throughout the season. It can get a bit humid during July and August, but at night it tends to cool off dramatically. The city and nearby area also plays host to many festivals and events during this season. Make sure to book your hotel early to get the room and price you want.

If you can brave the cold, you're sure to score a great deal on a hotel in Pontiac during winter. However, temperatures are almost always below freezing, even during the day, and snowfall can sneak into the forecast with little warning. If you're traveling to Pontiac during January, be aware that the famous Detroit Auto Show is in full swing, which may cause hotel demand and prices to surge.

Fall and spring are the most beautiful months to visit Pontiac, as temperatures range from the 40s to the 70s, creating a pleasant atmosphere to explore the city on foot. Changes in weather happen without warning, but dressing in layers and taking both a heavy and light jacket should suffice. When you want to get into the Halloween spirit, make sure to visit in October. Depending on what's happening in the area, you can usually find a good deal on a hotel, but always check for festivals and sporting events.
