Brighton is a city in the state of Colorado and also the capital of Adams County. It is located about 30 miles north of Denver. Initially established in the 1870s, the settlement was called Hughes Station. In 1887 it was converted to Brighton in honor of Brighton Beach, New York. The city is a part of the Denver–Aurora–Lakewood, CO Metropolitan Statistical Area.
Interstate 76 runs along Brighton's eastern border, heading towards downtown Denver. Colorado State Highway 2 and 7 intersect in the northwest of the city. Thanks to an extensive and well-kept road network, you can reach the Denver city center and Denver International Airport in less than 30 minutes.
The city's education system is administered by School District 27J. It consists of over a dozen elementary schools, middle schools, charter schools, alternative schools, and three high schools, including Brighton High School.
Brighton is characterized by many parks, including Carmichael Park, Veterans Park, and Benedict Park. Recreation enthusiasts will appreciate the Brighton Recreation Center and the Todd Creek Golf Club located west of the city. Within the city is The Prairie Center, a 396-acre shopping center with a pedestrian-oriented retail village. The city is also a guarantee of development, primarily due to its proximity to Denver and nearby residential and transport infrastructure. Real estate is rapidly gaining in value here, and the surrounding industry is booming thanks to modern technologies. Brighton, however, does not forget about history and traditions. Huge green plains and groves here and there make Brighton a natural beauty. Especially when you are standing on the shores of Lake Barr and looking straight at the horizon, it's worth living here.
