Perfectly Located for Outstanding Lifestyles
In Brunswick, we're relaxing when everybody else is still driving. You can get to almost any major cultural or recreational venue in the same amount of time, or less, that a worker in New York, D.C., Northern Virginia, Philadelphia or New Jersey spends just getting to work. For most Brunswick workers, the office is well within a 10- to 30-minute hassle-free drive.
Recreational & Cultural Opportunities Abound
Between Lake Gaston, Lake Phoenix Scuba Park and Family Campground (formerly Lake Rawlings), the scenic Meherrin River, the Rails to Trails biking route, the Birding and Wildlife Trail, and many other recreational choices, your employees will find something to enjoy regardless of their interests. If they want a mountain or beach getaway, with a 2-hour drive they'll have their choice of either!
Our ArtBank of Southside Virginia, Brunswick Museum, and annual festivals provide an array of cultural experiences, and we have easy access to the rich cultural opportunities in Richmond and Washington, D.C.
With four distinct seasons and mild winters, having fun outside and away from the office is a year-round possibility. An 85º day in November is not unusual in Brunswick — and we have temperatures that are perfect for sun and water fun from May to September.
Highways That Make Travel Convenient
We enjoy easy north-south access via I-85 as well as US Highway 1 and nearby I-95. East and West-bound traffic is serverd by US Highway 58, through the centrally located county seat at Lawrenceville and all the way to the Chesapeake Bay.
Successful Businesses That Support the Base
We have a successful infrastructure of businesses that serve our local community, and our fiber broadband access now makes it possible to locate or start any type of business here. Brunswick encourages women to establish businesses, and has the highest rate of women owned businesses in the state of Virginia. Over 30 percent of our businesses are owned by women; over 35% of our businesses are owned by minorities.
Discover One of Virginia's Best Kept Secrets
When Brunswick County was established, there was a requirement that early settlers plant fruit trees on their granted land. Many of those orchards, now 300 years old, still continue to bear fruit.
