Brunswick is the major urban and economic center in southeastern Georgia in the United States. As of the 2010 census, the city had a population of 15,383.
The city traces its roots to its 1738 settlement as a tobacco plantation by British colonists and a southern buffer to Spanish Florida. It came under provincial control in 1771 and was founded as Brunswick after the duchy of Brunswick-Lüneburg in Germany, the ancestral home of the Hanoverians. It was officially incorporated in 1856.
Brunswick is near Jacksonville, Florida, and Savannah, Georgia. With a deepwater port, Brunswick supports thriving seafood and shipping industries. Naval stores, pulp and wood products, bulk cargoes, and tourism are prominent in the local economy.
The Port of Brunswick forms a vital part of the city's economy. It is recognized as one of the most productive ports on the East Coast and is the sixth-busiest automobile port in the United States; it is the primary export facility for two of the three United States traditional automotive manufacturers: Ford and General Motors. In addition, the port is also the primary export facility for Mercedes-Benz. The port serves as the central import facility for Hyundai, Jaguar, Kia, Land Rover, Mitsubishi, Porsche, and Volvo.
Tourism is the single largest industry in the city and the county. Brunswick and the Golden Isles are a year-round resort community. The islands' beaches, resorts, shops, and historic sites annually attract visitors from around the world. President George W. Bush hosted the G8 summit in 2004 on Sea Island.
The median income for a household in the city was $22,272, and the median income for a family was $28,564.
