A more updated review
I have been in Brunswick for the last 13 years. Many of the reviews that are here were accurate 8, 10, or 15 years ago (when they were written). Today, we still have some crime, but a whole lot more police. The housing and shopping are plentiful and the employment opportunities are outstanding.
A silly example: We have a book store (Books a Million). Most of you would say "big deal!" The next nearest bookstore is more than 125 miles away.
Housing is what you make it. I can show you a home for $25,000 or a home for $25 million. Food and fuel prices are good and there is a saying here: Whatever you need is here in Brunswick. If it is not, then there is a major city one hour to the south(Jacksonville) and one to the north (Savannah).
As a bonus- the coast can be reached in about 30 minutes or less from just about anyplace in or around the city.
