I feel that Brighton is a very nicely sized town, always decorated in wonderful flowers and decorations. Brighton always has very lovely fairs and festivals
Brighton is a small suburb outside of Detroit that is growing at a fast pace. Most professional employment is not located near Brighton and there is a commute time of about an hour for most business professionals. There is not much of a night life and there are few restaurants that are worth talking about. It is however surround by parks and lakes to enjoy if you are an outdoor enthusiast.
