Glynn County is located along the Atlantic coast in south-eastern Georgia, midway between Savannah, Georgia and Jacksonville, Florida. The county was created in 1777, from 423 square miles of land formerly held by Creek Indians. Glynn County is named for John Glynn, a member of the British Parliament who once held the position of Sergeant of London. Brunswick, the county seat and the county’s only municipality, was named in honor of England’s King George, who was of the House of Brunswick.
The area ranks as one of the top tourist destinations in the nation. Known as “The Golden Isles”, the county’s main-land is surrounded by barrier islands including Jekyll Island, Saint Simons Island and Sea Island. Featuring 207 holes of golf, as well as beautiful beaches on the islands, this coastal location is a haven for residents and visitors alike.
Glynn County is easily accessible via Interstate-95, US Route 17, US Route 82 & US Route 341, as well as two air-ports (Brunswick Golden Isles Airport and McKinnon Saint Simons Island Airport).
