Although French Canadians, Europeans, and Native Americans lived in the area for centuries, it wasn't until 1921 that the city officially incorporated. Shortly after this time, Royal Oak experienced a population boom thanks to rapid industrialization and the boom of the automotive industry. Following a decline in the 1970s and '80s, the city rebounded in the 1990s and early 2000s as one of the premier nightlife and entertainment destinations in the Detroit area. In addition, Royal Oak boasts over 50 parks and 70 restaurants. Lofts and condos also dot the area, increasing foot traffic to downtown and causing a revitalization among local businesses.

When to Visit Royal Oak, MI

The best time to travel to Royal Oak is during the summer, when downtown is hopping and the sun is shining. Most of the time, temperatures only top out in the 80s, with lows in the high 60s or low 70s. With these amazing temperatures, you're free to explore the area on foot in a t-shirt and shorts. Be aware that humidity can saturate the air, so you may want to grab a shower before you head out for the evening. Hotels are at peak demand during this time, so make sure to book a room well in advance to get your preferences.

Winter is downright brutal in Royal Oak. Temperatures rarely rise above freezing from December through February, and if you stay for a week or more, prepare yourself for a decent amount of snowfall. Make sure to pack a heavy jacket and warm clothes, and give yourself some extra time if you're planning to drive somewhere. Most hotels experience large vacancies during winter, so you might be able to grab a last-minute deal and avoid the crowds.

Late spring and early fall blend into the summer, so if you want to experience Royal Oak with fewer tourists, head here during these times. Temperatures generally range from the 40s to the 60s, so it's pleasant most of the time. Rainfall is still a possibility, so make sure to pack a raincoat if you're heading out on foot. Hotel demand varies with the events going on in the city and the surrounding area.
