Take a Tour of Brunswick

Despite the fact that Brunswick is an old mill town and there are big box stores just outside of town, downtown Brunswick is doing OK.  The old restored Ritz Theater is the home of the Golden Isles Arts and Humanities Association which hosts a number of events throughout the year.  The Brunswick-Golden Isles Chamber of Commerce and the Brunswick and Glynn County Development Authority support the businesses.   The beauty of downtown is protected by the Old Town National Historic District. 

Downtown Brunswick is just a couple of blocks from Brunswick Landing Marina.  Pam and I took a walking tour of downtown yesterday.    We were delighted by what we found.   Art galleries, a bookstore, a wine shop, antique stores, a drug store, restaurants, and even a cupcake and ice cream shop!

Again, rather than post a whole string of photos here, I put them together in a slideshow and posted it to YouTube.   Enjoy our Walking Tour of Downtown Brunswick.


  1. Dave,

    Whats the significance (if any) of the different national flags at the marina?

    1. I wanted to make sure I got this right, so I went to the marina office and asked. The French, Spanish, and British flags represent the heritage of the owner. The other two flags are the American and Georgia state flag.
