Small-town southern charm and collegiate energy intersect in Hattiesburg, a small city on Interstate 59 just north of De Soto National Forest. The northwestern corner of the city largely revolves around the University of Southern Mississippi, a medium-sized college that serves as the main cultural hub for the city. Locals often head to the campus for Golden Eagles sporting events, traveling exhibitions, and stage performances. Largely thanks to the student population, Hattiesburg boasts a vibrant nightlife scene full of patio bars and lively nightclubs.
Things get considerably calmer a few blocks out from the Southern Miss campus, with tree-shaded suburban streets and tranquil city parks creating a placid atmosphere for folks who prefer peace and quiet. The historic Downtown area is a popular hangout for locals of all ages, featuring a collective of quaint storefronts, galleries, and performance venues.
