Located in Oakland County in southeast Michigan, the city of Auburn Hills (formerly known as Pontiac Township) is a suburb of Detroit. First settled in 1821, the city of Auburn Hills wasn't incorporated until 1983. The city is found along the Clinton River as well as Interstate 75. Located within the city limits is The Palace of Auburn Hills - home of the National Basketball Association's Detroit Pistons. However, there are many other things for which Auburn Hills is well known. Also found within the city are the headquarters of several extremely popular corporations, in addition to the marvelous Great Lakes Crossing Outlets shopping mall.

It is estimated that nearly 22,700 people currently reside in Auburn Hills. The city has a total area of 16.64 miles, according to the United States Census Bureau - making the population density approximately 1,364.2 inhabitants per square mile. Although Auburn Hills is very technologically advanced, highly popular, and just outside of one of Michigan's biggest cities, the prices of real estate are still below the statewide averages. The median home price in Auburn Hills is approximately $113,600, while the median rent price is approximately $940.

A majority of the city's employed residents work at least 35 hours (or more) per week. The unemployment rate in the city is 6.8%, which is slightly lower than the statewide average. The poverty level is only 12.7% - about 18% lower than the national average.

Auburn Hills has an endless list of possible places to visit and things to do. Though a stop by The Palace of Auburn Hills tops the list of many people, there are numerous other fun and interesting places within the city's walls that are certainly worth a visit. The Great Lakes Crossing Outlets mall is the largest enclosed shopping mall in Michigan, with 185 shops, restaurants, and entertainment options. Located inside of the Great Lakes Crossing mall, but still worth a visit, are the Sea Life Michigan Aquarium and LEGOLAND Discovery Center Michigan. Also very popular, especially among the young ones, is Pump It Up - an inflatable entertainment complex, with extra rooms for rent for birthday parties. For those who are interested in history, classic cars, or both - the Walter P. Chrysler museum is a must see! Spanning three floors, the museum gives a bit of a glimpse into the history of the automotive industry, and has some of the most incredible classic cars in the world.

In addition to the countless interesting things to do or see in Auburn Hills, the city is also home to several company headquarters.

Approved by the city in 1985, the Oakland Technology Park was constructed by developers with the help of Oakland University, as a technology and research park. Well known companies such as Chrysler, Comerica, and Electronic Data Systems (EDS) have campuses located there.
