BrightonBrighton is a fabulous destination located south of Highway 401 along the scenic shores of Lake Ontario, in the County of Northumberland. Brighton is an hour and a half (160 km) east of Toronto and an hour (110 km) west of Kingston. The city offers the friendliness and relaxed atmosphere of a small town and provides unlimited opportunities. Sail away from your backyard or just walk through the natural healthy environment that surrounds the community.
Brighton, "Where the Past Greets the Future," is known for excellent fishing, quaint bed and breakfast locations, antique shops, bird watching, and a truly charming atmosphere. Literally surrounded by orchards, agriculture is still an active commodity of Brighton.
Brighton has excellent harbour facilities. Presqu'ile Provincial Park, which accommodates 200,000 visitors annually, is a popular camping and natural bird watching park. For the sports lover, there is an arena and curling club, canoeing, fishing, hiking, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, hockey and six local golf courses. The Proctor Barn Theatre produces sold out drama productions throughout the year.
