I absolutely love Brewton! It is a very tight knit community and when there is a tragedy every one is quick to come together. One thing i would like to see in the area is more things for the kids to do. Right now there is nothing. Would love to see a movie theater, bowling alley, or skating rink.
Review Brewton
Brewton is a small town, that is constantly growing. Its the perfect place to raise a family and is central to Florida and Mississippi. You can literally be a the beach within an hour from Brewton. Brewton is definitely a great place to visit!
Brewton is a small town but it is peaceful and quiet. I am originally from Fort Worth, Texas so the change is like night and day. Fort Worth is very face paced, there are numerous highways and they have even put in a toll road now. Brewton has a two lane road that takes you into town and brings you back. It is right near the Florida line so you can travel a little more down south to the bigger cities such as Pensacola, FL. It allows you the enjoyment of a simple life but you have the option to drive down to the ocean every once and a while. It is a very nice town that anyone could get used to.
