It is a good town to live in. There are a lot of people that truly care, and they come together as a community to help out their neighbors and the people around them. There is some great, fun things to do, and some wonderful hikes. It's in a perfect area to get to Harper's Ferry and down to Frederick, which is the heart of the county. However, the school system could use some help. It is not the safest place for my child to go, and it is not always great at communicating. However, there are always bad apples in every environment and this just happens to effect me more than it may others in the town. I still feel that the area is safe enough that I can walk the dog at night and not worry about my safety.
Review Brunswick
I enjoy how small of a town Brunswick Maryland is. Living in a small town allows more people to know each other personally. Living in a big town is too crowd and does not allow individual to enjoy the spaces and the country land of Brunswick.
I grew up in this town and is one of the safest places I've ever been. It has such a small town charm and has the best people in it. It's a great place to raise children. It's far away enough that it's not in the middle of the city but not too far way from it.
