I have lived in Brighton, Michigan my entire life. I love this city very much for multiple reasons. The people from here are usually very kind and friendly and there are many activities to do around here. We have wonderful lakes and metroparks throughout the city, we have a movie theater, bowling alley, arcade, laser tag arena, ice skating arena, and many other great places to go. There is always something to do in Brighton. Over the summer there is a concert at the Millpond every Sunday. It's fun to bring your family, go out with friends, or even just go by yourself. Brighton is filled with wonderful restaurants and beautiful homes. I am so blessed to have been raised in such an amazing community and if I had the choice to live somewhere else I don't think I would. Our location is also great because you can drive less than a hour and be in the states Capitol city of Lansing, or go the opposite direction and you could be in the great city of Detroit for a concert or baseball, hockey, or football game. Also we are only about an hour away from Ohio as well. Brighton is located in such a wonderful area and there is always something happening here so you should never get bored of this great town!

South Lyon is great! Wonderful people, wonderful neighborhood.
It's affordable, pleasant surroundings, lots of lakes, trees, small town in-the-country feeling, small downtown with local parades, art fairs, etc. Michigan is nice because of the 4 seasons. I do not like extreme cold or extreme heat and, if we have it, it doesn't last too long because another season will be coming soon. In the future, I'd like to buy a house on one of the many lakes around here.
