EXPLORE HATTIESBURG

Affectionately known as the "Hub City," Hattiesburg is a city with roots as deep as its oaks and aculture steeped in history. Here, you'll find a story of homegrown memories, vibrant and crafty experiences and a city full of familiar faces and detours. Revel in an afternoon of browsing an upmarket shopping center or unearthing treasures at a local record shop, art gallery or antique store. Split a carrot with a two-toed sloth at the zoo, duck through the battle trenches of military museums, or bike more than 40 miles of reclaimed railroad passing beneath your feet. Bask in the artistry, history, food, and the town.

MEET COREY CHRISTY
