    Brunswick Reviews

    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.
    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.
    There is not a very big variety as Brunswick is a very small area. We have a Roy Rogers, a Rite Aid and no grocery store. People can not get everything they need in Brunswick and often have to go to the next city over to finish shopping. For example, my uncle goes to the city Frederick in order to do grocery shopping every weekend.
