Community Resources

Nestled along the southeastern shore of the Atlantic Ocean, Glynn County is comprised of the city of Brunswick, including its historic district, and a string of barrier islands known as the “Golden Isles,” Jekyll Island, St. Simons Island, Little St. Simons Island, and Sea Island. Each has its own unique identity: quaint historic downtown Brunswick, Jekyll Island’s quiet beaches of white sand, the bustling boutiques and savory cafes of St. Simons, the pristine natural beauty of Little St. Simons, and the classic luxury of Sea Island. Each area is unique, yet an integral part of what makes Brunswick and the Golden Isles one of the best places to call home.
