Brunswick, Maine is the northern end of the Portland Metro Area. Its population is around 21,000.
Brunswick is the home of Bowdoin College, which boasts many famous alumni including Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, President Franklin Pierce and Senator George Mitchell.
Brunswick Naval Air Station also calls the area home. Although slated to be closed in 2011, it still plays a major role in Brunswick’s economics and population.
Visitors entering Brunswick northbound, via US Route 1, will first travel Pleasant Street, which offers many eating establishments and lodging. Then Route 1 turns left onto Mill Street, which is residential with a few commercial properties. Mill Street then divides and US Route 1 becomes a four-lane access controlled highway to Bath.
Visitors wishing to explore the fine features of Brunswick should not turn left onto Mill Street, but continue straight on Pleasant Street, ending on Maine Street.
Visitors coming in from the northeast, should exit US Route 1 at the New Gurnet Road exit (Cook’s Corner) and travel on ME Route 24 (Old Bath Road) into Brunswick.More About Brunswick
