I love this tiny town. It is full of wonderful, talented and loving people. There may not be too many options for recreation, but I can assure you that you will always find a friend! Schools are very well run and local Law Enforcement keep the town and surrounding area very safe and secure.

The thing that I love about Brewton is how it is such a family-friendly town. I have two sisters, and my role as a their big sister is to protect them at all cost, so safety is very important to me. Brewton is a town where everybody knows one another which is why it is such a friendly town. The only thing that I would change about Brewton is some of the roads need to be paved. When driving along some of the roads in they can be bumpy which can be uncomfortable.
I grew up in Brewton, and it’s given me more opportunities than one could imagine for such a small town. The people in Brewton are some of the greatest people I’ve ever met. Even though Brewton isn’t somewhere I’ll move back to (I prefer larger cities), it is definitely one of the best places someone can raise a family.
