Brighton

The dynamic and peaceful neighborhood is a great place for young families and professionals.

Sitting on the shores of the Charles River, Brighton’s multi-family homes and condos give it a welcoming vibe. Washington Street runs through the center and is home to many small businesses.

The Main Streets program is bringing new shops and storefronts to the area. Brighton has two major hospitals:

  • St. Elizabeth’s, and
  • the Franciscan Children’s Hospital.
