Brighton is an inviting community that offers the best of both worlds: modern and historic, town and country, lively and serene. Its historic downtown is vibrant with on-trend shops, upscale boutiques, destination dining and a steady stream of festivals and entertainment that would rival any urban hot spot. Yet just outside the city, the area is surrounded by peace and quiet, and natural beauty, that would be expected from an “up north” location.
Explore the Tridge and half mile nature boardwalk along downtown Brighton’s tranquil Mill Pond. Children can make-believe they are in a miniature fantasy land while playing in the 10,000 square foot Imagination Station, a wooden playscape here in Brighton’s Principal Shopping District. Whether in search of art galleries, boutiques, specialty shops, outdoor sculptures, or just a great place to eat.
Throughout the year, Brighton hosts a farmers’ market, summer concert series, 4th of July Parade, Fine Art & Acoustic Music Festival in August, Smokin’ Jazz & BBQ Festival in September, Harvest Fest at the Farmers’ Market in September, the Tour de Livingston cycling race in October, Tridge-or-Treat Halloween Spooktacular and the Holiday Glow in November.
