Brunswick is the major urban and economic center in lower southeastern Georgia in the United States. The municipality is located on a harbor of the Atlantic Ocean, approximately 30 mi north of Florida and 70 mi south of South Carolina. Brunswick is bordered on the west by Oglethorpe Bay and the East and Turtle rivers, on the south by the Brunswick River, and on the east by the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, which separates it from the Golden Isles. It is the second-largest urban area on Georgia’s coast, after Savannah, and is the seat of government for Glynn County. British colonists settled the peninsula in 1738 as a buffer to Spanish Florida. It came under provincial control in 1771 and was founded as Brunswick after the German duchy of Brunswick–Lüneburg, the ancestral home of the House of Hanover. It was incorporated as a city in 1856. Throughout its history, Brunswick has served as an important port city: in World War II, it served as a strategic military location with an operational base for escort blimps and a shipbuilding facility for the U.S. Maritime Commission. Today the area supports a progressive economy largely based on tourism and logistics with a metropolitan GDP of $3.9 billion. The Port of Brunswick handles approximately 10 percent of all U.S. ro-ro trade—third in the U.S. behind the ports of Los Angeles and Newark. The headquarters of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center is located 5 mi north of the central business district of the city and is adjacent to Brunswick–Golden Isles Airport, which provides commercial air service to the area.
