    Brighton rocks!

    Outdoorsy and idiosyncratic, Brighton is characterized by freshwater lakes, sprawling recreation areas, and quirky attractions. As locations go, this city at the heart of the Great Lakes region has it all. A Brighton vacation rental will put you within easy striking distance of the vibrant university city of Ann Arbor, and the iconic sights and culture of Detroit, while still being moments from open country, snow sports, and outdoor living. Get a lungful of fresh air, then follow it up with a bellyful of good food and craft beer at one of the city's many excellent eateries.

    A whole lotta hot air

    Whatever your preferred flavor of outdoor activity, chances are it's right on your doorstep with a Brighton vacation rental. Love your winter sports? Head to Mount Brighton to scratch that itch. Keen to practise your swing? Brighton's got championship-standard golf courses. Being in the Great Lakes region, and with more than its own fair share of smaller lakes, water activities are big on the Brighton agenda, with swimming, boating, and fishing all popular. Then there's hiking, biking, and horse riding at the city's recreation areas. Island Lake Recreation area even has ballooning and shooting, though these two activities are probably best undertaken separately.

    Live a life less ordinary on your Brighton vacation rental

    There's something about Brighton that seems to breed collectors, the quirkier the better. One of the city's best known attractions, the Lingenfelter collection, features more than 150 performance cars, including all-American muscle cars and European classics. For an even more eccentric collection, try the Ann Arbor Pinball Museum (limited opening hours). If you still haven't got your fix of culture and museums, downtown Detroit is less than an hour's drive away, while the museums and busy cultural life of Ann Arbor are only 25 minutes off. Back in Brighton, unwind with a bit of family-friendly airtime at the Sky Zone indoor trampoline park.

    Brighton breezy weather for versatile vacationers

    In keeping with its generally obliging character, a Brighton vacation rental's got something to offer you whatever the season. Summers are hot, with occasional thunderstorms, while winters tend to be cold and dry. Snow is a distinct possibility, which is good news for the slopes of Mount Brighton. One of the loveliest seasons in this part of Michigan is fall - try Brighton Recreation Area for some picture-postcard fall foliage colors. One peculiarity of the climate in the Great Lakes is the so-called 'lake effect', which can make it quite cloudy round here in late fall/early winter.

    Round here it does what it says on the box

    Brighton is set at the heart of the Great Lakes region, and the name is no understatement. The largest group of freshwater lakes on the planet, and covering a collective area of nearly 100,000 square miles, these vast inland seas are a wonder of the world. From Brighton, Lake Huron and Lake Erie are practically on your doorstep, while the country round Brighton is full of smaller lakes and recreation areas, with all the associated wildlife you'd expect. Despite its outdoorsy character and open spaces, Brighton's also so close to Detroit that it's actually classed as a suburb.
