Brunswick (Maryland)

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Brunswick [1] is a small town in Frederick County, Maryland, on the Potomac River. Once a company town for the B&O Railroad, now a sleepy bedroom community, it can make for a good access point for activities along the Potomac.

Get in[edit]

By train[edit]

Brunswick is, appropriately enough, on the Brunswick line of the MARC commuter rail line, which runs from Washington, D.C. to Martinsburg, West Virginia.

Brunswick MARC station

Amtrak's Capitol Limited runs through Brunswick, but the nearest stop is Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, 8 miles to the west.
