This vibrant Brighton Michigan community is located at the intersection of I-96 and US-23. The economy is driven by many small, unique businesses, as well as by auto manufacturers and plastics technology. Plus, a lot of the residents enjoy the small town feel of Brighton to raise a family, but then commute to the more bustling cities of Detroit, Ann Arbor, or Lansing, which are only a short drive away.
Brighton Michigan really is chock full of small town charm, while offering a diverse selection of recreational, cultural, and social activities. The historic downtown area has the old town hall and St. James Church, which each have a beautiful architectural style. While in the quaint buildings downtown, there are a number of gourmet eateries and upscale boutiques. When you want to rest from shopping and dining, the tranquil Mill Pond Park is located right downtown. This park has a large wooden playground that will delight any child (or adult) and in the summer hosts local music acts.
Throughout the year, there are a number of cultural events that you can partake in. Whether you want to see great art, listen to rocking music, or do one of the other events that Brighton hosts every year, you will always have something to do.
