Best Time to Visit Detroit Michigan
Motor City has a lot to rev your engine during the spring, summer, and fall. It can get a bit chilly during the winter but dont write off January, as that is when Cobo Hall holds its annual Detroit Auto Show - displaying the new goodies for gearheads. If you are planning on this event, book well in advance as many out-of-towners descend on Detroit. Click Here to find hotels in Detroit.

Average Detroit Weather
In January, the average low temperature is 17 degrees Fahrenheit with 30 degrees being the average high. July averages range from 62 to 82. Detroit has more winter precipitation than other cities, with an annual average of 34 inches of snow and 28 inches of rain.

From Detroit Metropolitan Airport to the city, Commuter Express, (888) 854-6700, offers frequent service to various locations. Detroit isnt named Motor City for nothing --- public transport is limited and infrequent; if you fly into town it's best to rent a car via one of the many national chains with area outlets. Also, the metro area is not particularly pedestrian-friendly. You really need wheels.

In-Season Costs
Hotel rooms can be surprisingly expensive in Detroit due to a rapid growth in business travel. Try to book well in advance to avoid prices of upwards of $100 for a moderate business classroom. Meals are more mainstream in price: Expect to pay around $20 for a nice dinner without wine and budget around $7-$10 for lunch money.
