Brunswick Georgia

Historic Downtown Brunswick

Historic Mainland Brunswick, which connects the Golden Isles, has a fascinating history of its own. General James Oglethorpe laid out its streets and squares in 1771, and in 1789 George Washington named it as one of the five original ports of entry for the colonies.


The Sidney Lanier Bridge, named for one of Georgia's most poignant writers, is Georgia's tallest bridge, spanning 7,780 feet and  rising to a height of 486 feet. Although just recently completed, this bridge has already allowed for a dramatic increase in Brunswick's shipping economy due to the larger shipping vessels which are now able to enter Brunswick's port.

Downtown Historic Brunswick is lined with quaint Victorian-style shops offering everything from original art pieces and antiques to outdoor cafes and business offices. Cultural and historical festivals, performances, and special events take place there year round.

Also located in down-town Historic Brunswick is the Ritz Theater which hosts outstanding live performances by touring groups (dance, theater and music), literary events, art classes and workshops.

Located at the Mary Ross Waterfront Park is the Liberty Ship Memorial Plaza, along with shrimp boats and the Emerald Pricess cruise ship. The Emerald Princess casino/cruise ship departs daily from Brunswick for five to six- hour cruises which include entertainment and dining among the evening's festivities.

Throughout Brunswick, you'll find a variety of art galleries, malls, shopping plazas and historical attractions the whole family can enjoy. When you're ready to relax and take a break from your busy day's excursions you'll have numerous first-class restaurants to choose from which serve everything from traditional Southern cuisine to their own unique gourmet specialties.
