Downtown Brighton is the city center in terms of retail and commercial business. It has recently developed a Principal Shopping District, which aims to help business owners and patrons feel connected to this commercially trendy but historically reminiscent area. The shopping district is developed as a walkable area, where you can easily run errands at the local CVS, pop over to a jewelry store or clothing boutique to browse, and then have a relaxing meal at one of the local pubs, grilles, or Thai or sushi restaurants in the area. The area is full of shops to explore-this is definitely one place that you will not exhaust.
History and the Arts
The City of Brighton Arts, History, and Culture Center (CoBACH) ensures that the community remains connected to its history and the arts by helping to provide a range of resources and venues. CoBACH is comprised of the Livingston Players, the local theater troupe, the Brighton Area Historical Society, and the Brighton Art Guild. The Historical Society focuses deeply on local history, with its restored original Lyon Hall schoolhouse serving as both a symbolic and functional symbol of learning about the community's rich past. The Players and the Guild help to spread art in the community through their focus on the performance and visual arts, respectively.
The Southeastern Livingston County Recreation Authority (SELCRA) is a comprehensively focused parks and recreation department that offers sports leagues for all ages on top of parks for recreation and events. In addition to providing the parks and spaces for different kinds of recreational activities for you to set up, SELCRA helps to organize and post information about many of these, including archery, disc golf, equestrian, gymnastics, karate, and swimming. For the more competitive, SELCRA also organizes various team sports leagues for adults, youth, and children. If you are an active person who loves to play sports all year round, Brighton is an ideal place for you to settle.
