Brunswick The Coast

Named for Branschweig, Germany, the port city of Brunswick lays claim to the title of world shrimp capital and is the home of Brunswick stew. Brunswick is fun to explore –the streets of Old Town, lined with Victorian homes, the bustling waterfront and the Marshes of Glynn all delight travelers with the flavor of a bygone era.

The mainland, port city of Brunswick is laid out in a formal grid similar to Savannah's, with city streets and squares still bearing their colonial names. Docked at the wharf, the array of shrimp boats are ready to trawl the local waters -- evidence of the area's rich seafood industry. Watch the ocean vessels come into port, see the shrimpers unload at the docks along Bay Street and then sample the catch of the day at one of the fine restaurants. Mary Ross Waterfront Park and the adjacent Brunswick Landing Marina play host to a variety of festivals and events throughout the year. Some of the annual events include the Brunswick Rockin' Stewbilee, the Rhythm on the River concert series, and the Blessing of the Fleet.
