Brighton Township Reviews

32 reviews
All Categories
In the Brighton area there are a ton of things to do! It's only 30 minutes from Ann Arbor, and the whole community is pretty tight-knit. It has been a great place to grow up because there is hardly any crime, most kids are respectful and kind, and there are plenty of opportunities to help with the community.
Review Brighton Township
My hometown used to be a family fun small town, but in recent years is turning more and more into a city which is really to bad. It hurts to see a small happy town turn into a looming city, to see forests chopped down, to have rich people moving in and see people not appreciate things. The education here is like all public schools, not very good but with high potential, the teachers are the problem. However it's still a great town, almost no crime, happy people, jobs for hire, the streets are clean and well lit, we have libraries and parks. I love Brighton Michigan.
Oh my gosh, it doesn't get much safer than Brighton, Michigan! There will be crime wherever you go, but it has never effected me or anyone close to me, and you don't hear about many crimes happening here, so I definitely feel safe.
