Beat the Heat in HBURG

The sun is up, the sky is clear, and there’s only one thing on your mind… It’s hot! In South Mississippi, we love the heat, but we know it isn’t always comfortable. Luckily, in Hattiesburg there are plenty of ways to BEAT THE HEAT.


Here are just a few ideas to get you started:


Pop Brothers at The Lucky Rabbit

Pop Brothers have partnered with The Lucky Rabbit on Mobile Street to bring you ice-cold pops all summer long! Maybe you’re wanting a fruit-based pop like the berries and cream, or will it be a famous poptail to keep you cool? Even the pups get to enjoy this treat with pupsicles of their own. Whatever you’re feeling, Pop Bros has some yummy ice pops to help you cool down on a hot summer day.



Birdhouse Café

Looking for a healthier option? No problem! Stop by Birdhouse Café, a café dedicated to serving high quality, healthy meals. At Birdhouse Café, you can get a cold treat that’s both delicious and nutritious. Try smoothies like Pretty in Pitaya or Risi Piecey. No matter what you choose, you’ll be energized and ready to continue your Hattiesburg adventure!




If Hattiesburg has one thing to keep you cool, it's snowballs. Try some of our favorites like Connie's Cones on Old Highway 11, Alpine Snow on 11th Avenue, on the newly opened Main St. Snow on Main St. These stands have something for everyone with toppings galore. Don't believe us? Come try it for yourself.



Java Moe’s

We would be remiss if we didn’t mention classic iced coffee. Java Moe’s is a locally owned and operated coffee shop with two locations in Hattiesburg. Stop by one of their locations on Hwy 98 for a cold brew or a frappé. Artfully crafted and deliciously tasty, Java Moe’s is a must-have while in Hattiesburg. And while you’re there… you might as well add a muffin!



Ice Cream

While perusing Walnut Square Gifts’ unique shopping opportunities, don’t miss out on their ice cream parlor! Take your pick of Blue Bell Ice Cream, or try out a daily special like Two-Scoop Tuesday and Waffle Cone Wednesday. Add your topping for the perfect cold treat and continue enjoying the beautiful summer day.

New to downtown is Pop Co, featuring gourmet popcorn and ice cream. This mom-and-pop shop is sure to keep you cool with its variety of flavors. While you're at it, head to Midtown to check out Nannie Mac's this coffee shop turned ice cream parlor has a little something for everyone. What will it be? An ice-cold latte or a fresh milkshake? There is no wrong choice here!



Summer is here, and we couldn’t be more excited! No matter where your Hattiesburg adventures may take you on a beautiful summer day, there are plenty of opportunities to beat the heat with some Hattiesburg sweet treats!
