Brunswick is a city on the southeast coast of Georgia. It’s known for its Victorian-era Old Town Historic District and the huge, centuries-old Lover’s Oak tree. Causeways link the city to the 4 barrier islands of the Golden Isles. Sea Island has resorts and golf clubs. St. Simons Island is home to Fort Frederica National Monument, the preserved remains of an 18th-century stronghold and St. Simons Lighthouse Museum.
This mainland port city is laid out in a formal grid similar to Savannah's, with city streets and squares still bearing their colonial names. Docked at the wharf, the array of shrimp boats are ready to trawl the local waters—evidence of the area’s rich seafood industry. Watch the ocean vessels come into port, see the shrimpers unload at the docks along Bay Street and then sample the catch of the day at one of the fine restaurants.
Traveling to Brunswick is easy, with commercial air service available to and from Brunswick Golden Isles Airport (Golden Isles is approximately one hour from the airports in Jacksonville, FL and Savannah, GA).
