Brighton Center has bus transportation to Boston and Cambridge. You can bike or walk to the Charles River and jog at the Chestnut Hill Reservoir if you live in Brighton Center. A popular coffee shop called Cafenation located at 380 Washington Street won the best of Boston 2016 award. That coffee shop became a little famous when it was chosen to give away Gilmore Girls swag prior to the release of the last Gilmore Girls Revival. The line was around the block for hours.

Brighton also has a public outdoor pool. It is in Cleveland Circle next to the Chestnut Hill Reservoir. It is not that common to see a public outdoor pool in Boston. The pool gets a little crowded in the summer, but it does the trick, especially for the little kids.
