Brunswick, Georgia is a small coastal community that is nestled about forty miles from the Florida border. One must keep in mind that this is a small southern town, therefore you cannot expect the same quality of anything in Brunswick compared to say Atlanta. Brunswick is a beach community and a college town. A twenty minuet drive to the Atlantic Ocean is always a given! While not much goes on in Brunswick, you do live close enough to bigger Georgian and Floridian cities, such as Savannah, Macon, and Jacksonville. The school system is decent. It isn't amazing, but it isn't terrible either (granted everyone's schooling experience is different, so take what you may). However, Brunswick is a calm and sleepy town, which makes it a great place to raise a family and retire! If you are looking for a small, family friendly town in the South I would recommend looking into Brunswick.

When i think of Brunswick, I think of home. I've traveled a lot over the years but there's something different about Brunswick. Brunswick has hospitality that's genuine and rare that attracts tourists by the millions yearly.

When I was 11, I moved to Brunswick in 2002. Now, I'm 27 and couldn't imagine how my life would've been if I didn't grow up here. I met friends that are now family and experiences that cannot be replaced.

Although Brunswick is built on hospitality, Brunswick isn't perfect. No town is perfect. So, if I could change something in Brunswick, I would like to see more resources used on children and the elderly. Children are our future and the elderly provide insight for us. Programs targeting children and the elderly will help Brunswick to have a better future.

I am the person I am because of Brunswick. The one place that anyone can always call home.
I've been living in Brunswick, Georgia my whole entire life and it's a pretty small city. Over the years, Brunswick has expanded building new attractions including stores and mostly restaurants. These new attractions have created new jobs for many and created new places for people to explore. I Personally feel like Brunswick should work on building more places where families or friends can go hang out and have a good time; Families and friends have plenty of places to eat and plenty of stores to shop, but not enough places to do fun activities. Many people, like myself, consider Brunswick to be a rather boring but growing city.
