    Brighton Gardens of Friendship Heights is another expensive community, but I like it. It's close to the subway and the grocery store. They also give nice foods -- i.e., 3 meals and 2 snacks. They have a choice of snacks and different kinds of foods. The grounds were kept clean, but I didn't like that it's so close to the school because they would have the school kids running around. The layout was good though. It was easy to get to one section to the other. Also, the staff was plentiful.

    We visited Brighton Gardens for my friend. It was very nicely in an urban setting near a metro, a restaurant, and a coffee shop you could walk to. Rooms were all comparable, but Brighton Gardens was more reasonably priced than the other community I saw. Their dining area was very nice, too.
