This beautiful plantation represents the history and culture of Georgia’s rice coast. In the early 1800s, William Brailsford of Charleston carved a rice plantation from marshes along the Altamaha River. The plantation and its inhabitants were part of the genteel low country society that developed during the antebellum period. While many factors made rice cultivation increasingly difficult in the years after the Civil War, the family continued to grow rice until 1913.The enterprising siblings of the fifth generation at Hofwyl-Broadfield resolved to start a dairy rather than sell their family home. The efforts of Gratz, Miriam and Ophelia Dent led to the preservation of their family legacy. Ophelia was the last heir to the rich traditions of her ancestors, and she left the plantation to the state of Georgia in 1973.A museum features silver from the family collection and a model of Hofwyl-Broadfield during its heyday. A brief film on the plantation’s history is shown before visitors walk a short trail to the antebellum home. A guided tour allows visitors to see the home as Ophelia kept it with family heirlooms, 18th and 19th century furniture and Cantonese China. A stop on the Colonial Coast Birding Trail, this is an excellent spot to look for herons, egrets, ibis and painted buntings. A nature trail that leads back to the Visitors Center along the edge of the marsh where rice once flourished.
Visited with my sister and from the entrance through the entire visit we were totally in awe. With the guide narrating it made you feel SD if you were part of the plantation experience. Totally informative and historically beautiful. Visit and take time to go through the entire place.

We recently stayed here with 5 12 year old boys. They had a great time. The lake was great for fishing! The campsite was very nice. We had plenty of room for boys to play and plenty of privacy. The bathhouses were very clean. The staff was very nice and helpful. It is also close to restaurants. The salt water pier is closed for now, but our boys had plenty to do without it. The park is beautiful and well kept. I would definitely return here.

Over 22 grassed waterfront acres open to the public for enjoying the beautiful coastal scenery of Brunswick, Georiga. Extra wide sidewalks line the river for easy walking and biking.
Stayed here several times for the night when passing through. Easy stay. Town of Brunswick is charming with great restaurants. Basil Thai our favorite.

First of all this isn’t in the best part of town. The tree itself is beautiful but I would recommend visiting the Howfyl plantation to see some magnificent oaks in a safe environment. The history is impressive but I was not impressed by anything else.

The theatre productions are excellent from start to finish,giving audience the feeling of being actively engaged in the production. The connecting gallery space is most inviting and provides a great opportunity to become acquainted with local artist and purchase a piece of art. Pay great...MoreThank you!

A nice spot to see the marshes, read some informative panels explaining why the marshes are so important to our environment, and also how they contribute to the stellar shrimp population in the area.
There are covered picnic tables, which are useful because there are a lot of birds that will circle you while eating and you don't want them contributing anything to your food or drink.
Convenient parking (free) and the area is wheelchair accessible.

Historic Downtown Brunswick's theater and arts center, offering year-round performing arts, films, exhibits, and educational programs for the Coastal Georgia community. Managed and operated by Golden Isles Arts & Humanities Association.
The Ritz is an historic old theater in downtown Brunswick. It is a nice place to see a musical performance or a show. Feel like it does need a bit of refurbishment to bring it back to the original beauty. I know it has been updated but the workmanship and comfort do not do this old theater any justice. Look at what has been done to the Fox Theater in Atlanta or the Macon Opera House. Those places have the wow factor and the Ritz does not.

Lovely park with memorials to WWII. A brown pelican art sculpture and the Peacemaker tall ship on display were some of the items to view while on our trip down Rt 341 for the Peaches to Beaches yard sale. 45 or so vendors on site.

Whether it's your first time visiting Georgia's Golden Isles or your fifteenth time, our many information agents are here to assist you at the Golden Isles Welcome Center.
They were very helpful and explained that a lot of the activities we were interested in were limited because once school is in session, (s)low season starts activities like segway rental, swimming pool, dolphin tours, kayaking open during the week only on the weekend.

A diamond in the Golden Isles. This historical 1800's shul is so welcoming to the greater South Georgia community as well as guests visiting the Golden Isles. Great Rabbi, cool Moorish architecture and plentiful programming. Any Jewish Tour of the south is not complete without a visit with Rabbi Bregman and Temple Beth Tefilloh.
