"A great place to live, play and visit in South Mississippi"

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, smaller towns like Laurel, Seminary, Collins, Sumrall, Bassfield, Purvis, Lumberton, Wiggins, Prentiss, etc. etc. etc.) and urban (Jackson, New Orleans, Memphis, Little Rock, Birmingham, 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 a military post - Camp Shelby, two rivers, antique malls, music establishments and numerous festivals and events throughout the year, from music to food, to home and garden shows, to many other hospitable activities + www.myhattiesburg.com
