What Bert Has To Say About Brunswick Metro Area

Brunswick, a historic port town located half way between Savannah and Jacksonville, Florida, serves as a gateway to the “Golden Isles” – the resort islands of Jekyll and St. Simons. Brunswick itself is quaint and full of historic interest, but also functions as a major port of entry for automobiles and other commodities, and has a substantial fishing and shrimp industry and some remnants of a once-larger chemical industry. But the big “growth” industry is leisure and retirement. The islands, which have been recognized leisure destinations for over 100 years, offer a wide assortment of leisure and resort activities and living accommodations.
