Brighton offers affordable family and retiree-friendly homes and bungalows. The town features an ever-growing downtown with unique shops, antiques, and cafes. It has a strong agricultural community and hosts its largest yearly event in late September with Applefest. Just south of town is one of Brighton’s most popular attractions, Presqu’ile Provincial Park. The park is noted for nature-oriented activities and is a great spot for bird-watching year-round. With a population of 11,844, Brighton is popular among young families, as it has a high school and public school right in town.
