Yachts For Sale In Brunswick
The historic seaport city of Brunswick, on the southeast coast of Georgia, is about midway between Jacksonville to the south and Savannah, Georgia to the north. It is the second largest city on Georgia’s coast and the mainland part of the Golden Isles and connected by causeways to the surrounding barrier islands that comprise the Golden Isles—St Simons Island being the largest of the four. The Atlantic Intercoastal Waterway, running north and south, separates the barrier islands from the mainland city of Brunswick. The area got its designation, Golden Islands, from the original Spanish explorers who expected to find treasure and riches there.

The British dominated until 1776 when the Colonies won independence and the original 13 States of America were formed.
