Hattiesburg has a lot to offer: good schools (U.S.M., William Carey, J.C.J.C., Pearl River, and numerous high schools and elementary; from Hattiesburg to Petal to Oak Grove and beyond), nice people, shopping and entertainment options, not too far from other places of interest, rural (State Parks, natural areas, Rivers and Creeks, the Gulf Coast, small towns like Seminary, Collins, Sumrall, Bassfield, Purvis, Lumberton, Wiggins, Prentiss, etc. etc. etc.) and urban (Jackson, New Orleans, Memphis, Atlanta and many other off the beaten track and medium size communities in Ms. La. Ala. Tenn. Fla and Ga.). The Pine Belt also has Camp Shelby, numerous festivals and events throughout the year, from music, to home and garden shows, to many others + www.myhattiesburg.com
