Nestled in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest, just outside of Salt Lake City, the town of Brighton is an oasis from big city living. Beautiful mountain views, quaint cafes, and friendly locals make this a perfect destination to unwind and clear your head. Historic Main Street combines classic architecture with shopping that caters to all styles and budgets. Outside of the commercial district, the outdoor attractions of Brighton are a huge draw to locals and visitors. Brighton is one of the best places to try out a new sport and explore the great outdoors of Utah.
Here are just some of the ways to spend your time during your Brighton vacation experience:
-Go Hiking: In the warmer months, the Wasatch Mountains are the perfect place for hiking and camping.
-Park City Stables: Located in nearby Park City, these stables are home to 40 horses which can be taken out for lessons and guided rides.
-The Living Planet Aquarium: For a day of affordable entertainment, head to the local aquarium.
-Go Skiing: Of course, no vacation in Brighton would be complete without hitting the slopes in the winter months.
With its reputation as one of the world's premier ski destinations, it's no surprise that most of the major events and festivals in Brighton are centered around skiing. Watch some of the best skiers and snowboarders in the world compete at the Red Bull Butter Cup in December, meet famous celebrities at the star-studded extravaganza known as the Big LePowSki ski event in March, or enjoy the games and live music that are part of the End of Season Celebration in April.
Whether you're looking for a picturesque condo or a cozy apartment just steps from the mountains, there's a vacation rental that will put you exactly where you want to be in Brighton. The homes available throughout Brighton can also easily accommodate large groups and cater to all budget types.
In addition to all the attractions within Brighton, one of the main appeals of the area is its close proximity to several of the other major towns and cities within the region. The Mormon mecca of Salt Lake City and red rocks of Canyon Rim can both be reached within an hour drive.
