Brighton Reviews

Brighton is a great place to live! People are friendly, and there is plenty to do. It has a small town vibe, its fairly quiet and there isn't any crime, but there's always something to do like in the big cities. I love Brighton.
The weather in this area is very diverse- it is possible to have rain, sunshine, and snow all in one day! The snow can be a bit of a hassle in the winter/early spring months, but usually aren't too bad (besides, it usually clears up within a few days). The summers can be a bit warm, averaging at about 85 degrees. However, there are all four seasons in this area and you may even experience some tornado sirens every now and then during the summer months, although most of the tornadoes don't touch down.
The local business in this area are overall great! This area has grown so much over the years and there are currently new shopping centers, restaraunts, and fun places to visit. The quality of the local businesses are good as well and majority of the employees are very helpful and kind. Because this city has grown, everything that one needs is available, including grocery stores, gas stations, gyms, parks, and much more.
