When I grew up in Frederick County more than 30 years ago, Brunswick was a small town located close to Virginia. It seemed like we were visiting a different country when we went there to play baseball. At that time, as well as to this day, Brunswick is known for having great youth sports, specifically baseball. The town’s successful stature is due to the fact that it has great leaders in addition to being a very close community that cares about one another. I remember going to play games in Brunswick, and it seemed as if the entire town was in attendance. That’s just the type of community Brunswick is – tight-knit, caring, and compassionate.
Even more important is that since then, that same feeling of community is still very much alive. The fire department has many events for families, including dressing up as the Grinch and having Santa ride around on the fire truck so he can wave to all the kids during Christmas time. Halloween is also very big in this neighborhood where many families walk around to trick-or-treat while enjoying the entertaining decorations. The YMCA pool is just around the corner, which has a swim team with lessons available during the summer. A mini-golf course is in the works too for everyone to enjoy. A brand-new Weis Market is also being built just 2 miles away. And you’ll get to participate in the yearly yard sale and picnic.
Immerse Yourself in Historic Surroundings
Its rich history as a railroad town on the Potomac River makes Brunswick the perfect commuter location for the modern-day worker. Travel between here and Washington D.C. is a breeze as it’s a major stop on the Maryland Rail Commuter Train line (MARC). This location also puts you in close proximity to the local heritage museum that holds one of the largest model train layouts on the East Coast.
You’re also close to plenty of antique stores and outlets for an ideal shopping day. Harpers Ferry is only a few miles away where you, family, and guests can visit the Appalachian Trail and participate in many activities including white water rafting, fishing, mountain biking, canoeing, hiking, and rock climbing.
Brunswick’s Main Street located in Downtown offers you and visitors a great place to shop and get a true feel for the town’s history. During the summer months, you can visit the local Farmer’s Market and purchase a wide variety of produce, meats, cheeses, and crafts as well. Or, take guests on an excursion with walking tour details from the Brunswick Heritage Museum and enjoy the sights while going at your own pace.
