The town was laid out 240 years ago by General James Oglethorpe, and the magnificent Victorian architecture and colonial buildings have been lovingly preserved and restored by skilled craftspeople.
Brunswick is a port city with one of the busiest ports on the Atlantic Coast and the sixth busiest in the United States. Seafood restaurants abound, as do waterfront parks and activities. Brunswick is known as the “The Shrimp Capital of the World,” so you won’t want to miss this delicacy. Also not to be missed is The Brunswick Stewbilee, which celebrates this iconic concoction every October in Brunswick and every January on St. Simons Island. The main event is a Brunswick stew cook off where the culinary skills and secret recipes of many amateur and professional chefs compete for the awesome title of “Brunswick Stewmaster.”
A great place to start your adventures is the Mary Ross Waterfront Park, which is home to the Brunswick Stewbilee among other fascinating things to see and do.
The park is known for its Liberty Ship Memorial Plaza, featuring a scale model of a Liberty Ship just like those built in Brunswick shipyards during World War II. Also featured are outdoor musical venues, a stage pavilion, amphitheaters and the famous Brunswick Farmers Market.
Mary Ross Park invites you to sit and view the sunset over the marshes, enormous international oceangoing ships and the colorful, picturesque shrimp boats as a reminder that you are in The Shrimp Capital of the World.
St. Simons Island
St. Simons Island, like so many islands, is beautiful. What makes this island unique is its comparative lack of development. People come here to breathe easy, free of traffic, hordes of people and the usual plethora of hotels and vacation condominiums. Yet there is a lively shopping, wining and dining scene here on the island.
St. Simons is famous for its challenging golf courses. Since the island is unspoiled, you can actually book a tee time that suits you without worrying about slow play due to crowded conditions. Of course, being an island, there are also plenty of opportunities for a wide variety of water sports.
