Brunswick is a major city located in the state of Georgia, being at the same time the seat of government for Glynn County. The localization of Brunswick allowed for a great development, as Brunswick is 30 miles away from Florida and 70 miles away from South Carolina. Also, Brunswick is the second largest city in Georgia, being topped only by Savannah.
The history of Brunswick dates back to 1738, when it was settled as a tobacco plantation. Then, Brunswick was founded in 1771 and incorporated in 1856. Brunswick has a population of nearly 16.000 residents, according to the 2010 census. A particularly interesting fact about Brunswick is that it has two sister cities: Ilan (Taiwan) and Ganzhou (China). Nevertheless, Brunswick is also a popular tourist destination.
The Port of Brunswick, besides being an important hub on the Atlantic Coast, is also a great place to visit. The port is home to the Sidney Lanier Bridge, which as the name suggests, resembles the world-famous bridge in Sydney.
The Ritz Theatre is one of the many cultural institutions of Brunswick. The building that hosts the theatre is one of the oldest in Brunswick. Even if it was renovated in 1980 and then in 2000, it sure knew how to preserve its former glory and glamour. The theatre is also home to the Golden Isles Arts and Humanities Association, which hosts concerts, performances and dance recitals throughout the year.
The Golden Isles of Georgia are located only a stone-throw away from Brunswick, but they are definitely worth visiting since you are in the area. There are four barrier islands, including St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Jekyll Island and Little St. Simons Island. The Islands are preferred by many people in the United States as their holiday destinations.
Brunswick also provides numerous parks, squares, art galleries and sports facilities, so that anyone who visits Brunswick will have a nice time. Brunswick is also renown for the large number of live oak trees, particularly the 900 years old Lover's Oak, which has become one of the main symbols of the city.
