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.
Review Brighton
Small town feel with great neighbors and amenities. The schools are staffed with teachers who care and many opportunities. There are many locally owned restaurants to enjoy a sit down dinner and small shops for leisure. Additionally ally, there are several dog parks, running trails, and way access to a state park and bird conservation.
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.
