Living in Hattiesburg, MS

Hattiesburg still takes advantage of its position less than two hours from metropolitan areas such as New Orleans, LA; Jackson, MS; and Mobile, AL. The warm weather year-round, several golf courses, easy access to major hospitals, low taxes and affordable cost of living make this homey area a great renting choice. The town is even recognized as a Certified Retirement Community. However, two universities (the University of Southern Mississippi and William Carey) ensure that the community is lively, with an exciting restaurant scene, an active nightlife and a rich cultural environment including art galleries and an opera house.
