Brighton, Colorado is a rapidly growing, friendly community of over 32,000 and recently placed second in Gadberry Group’s “7 from 2007,” which lists the seven most notable high-growth places in the United States. Brighton retains traces of its earliest pioneers – Japanese and Hispanic settlers – as well as the farmers, rail barons and retail pioneers who envisioned a little city in this valley on the plains.
Today, its historic downtown is being reborn to provide the backbone for residents and entrepreneurs yet to come. The rich remnants of Brighton’s agricultural heritage are braided into lively brand new neighborhoods that contain the kinds of stores and services city dwellers demand. There’s also much more in store for newcomers who discover the small-town friendliness and easy way of life in this city on the move. Positioned east of I-25, along the Hwy 85 and I-76 corridors, Brighton enjoys fabulous panoramic views of the Front Range Rocky Mountains and over 300 days of sunshine each year. Outstanding recreation includes biking, hiking, skiing, fishing, picnicking, as well as school and club sports (i.e. hockey, baseball, soccer, volleyball, basketball and track). If your extracurricular interests include the arts or sporting events, a myriad of entertainment opportunities are minutes away.
