About The Area
With so much buzz around Portland, the city of Brunswick doesn’t always get its fair share of time in the spotlight. But in reality, it’s one of Maine’s best small cities and a truly wonderful place to live. Home to Bowdoin college, the town is filled with innovation and forward-thinking people—and doesn’t carry a college party town reputation by any measure. The restaurants, cafes, breweries, and galleries mean there’s always something to eat, drink, and do. And while the Brunswick real estate market is increasingly hot, it’s generally easier to buy here than its southern neighbors like Freeport, Yarmouth, Falmouth, and Portland.
Another advantage of living in Brunswick is its access to the Midcoast. Positioned about 30 minutes North of Portland, you’re that much closer to popular coastal towns such as Boothbay, Rockport, Camden, and more. Last but not least, the school system in Brunswick is fantastic, naturally inspired by the prestige of Bowdoin.
