Golden Isles 2017 Visitor Guide Page 10 Discover the Golden Isles

10 2017 Official Visitor Guide (800) 933-2627 Serving as the mainland to the Golden Isles, Brunswick is uniquely perched harbor-side near the Atlantic, with the Intracoastal Waterway separating it from the nearby islands. Christened one of five ports of entry for the original colonies by George Washington himself, Brunswick directly overlooks the saltwater marshes, naturally sheltered by the barrier islands that make up the Golden Isles. A trip to Downtown Brunswick will reveal architecture that is proudly Victorian, with street names which reflect their historic, colonial origins as laid out by General James Oglethorpe over 240 years ago. The continued restoration of significant historic sites only adds to Brunswick's unique flair. Historic Downtown Brunswick has a unique sense of closeness and community. A regular home to multiple festivals and special events, the first Friday of every month one can experience the atmosphere that makes Brunswick unique. Store owners, shoppers and entertainers stay late into the evening on this special night - the town bustling with life, as neighbors and vacationers alike visit the local shops, galleries, eateries and theatres, enjoying all that Old Town has to offer. Brunswick is also home to one of the largest and most productive ports on the east coast, a four-year college (College of Coastal Georgia), a world-class healthcare facility (Southeast Georgia Health System) and a major Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC).
