Brighton is one of the larger neighborhoods of Boston, and is the perfect combination of urban and suburban life. Much of Brighton along Commonwealth Avenue seems an extension of Allston, in that it is comprised of large turn of the century brick buildings, serviced by the subway line, with eateries and convenience stores dotting the way. There are three separate neighborhoods of Brighton each offers their own unique charm. The most densely populated area, Cleveland Circle has it all, with bars, restaurants, shops, a park with ball fields, ice skating rink, pool and a large reservoir with a 1 mile jogging path around it. This area is great for those commuting to the city since the B, C, and D subway lines all converge in this area. The Brighton Center and Oak Square areas are neighborhoods that are a little quieter at night, but still have no shortage of restaurants, cafes and nightlife. Locally owned businesses are mixed with national chains along Brighton’s main drag, Washington Street, which runs straight through Brighton Center to Oak Square. Set amid hills and well preserved Victorian houses, this is a great area for those who desire a distinctive small town feel.
