We've made it easy for you and rounded up nine perfect day dates in Hattiesburg for your Valentine.



1. Brunch & Mimosas at Crescent City  

Crescent City Grill, a Robert St. John restaurant, offers brunch every Saturday and Sunday with complimentary champagne and mimosas and we are here for it! Impress your date with a delicious brunch and champagne on the patio!   


2. Pack a picnic and head to Town Square Park

Twin Forks Wine and Provisions is your place to grab a picture-worthy charcuterie board and bottle of wine for your picnic in the park. While there check out the art installations or grab a book from the Little Free Library. The only thing needed is a checkered picnic blanket.



3. Bike the scenic Longleaf Trace

If your date loves nature get them to the Longleaf Trace for a leisurely bike ride. There are 44 miles of gorgeous trails and lakes. You can rent a variety of bicycle types at the 4th Street Station or you can bring your own. Pack some snacks to share on the Trace.


4. Discover the Hattiesburg Zoo

If your date is an animal lover (and who isn’t) a Zoo day is the best day! Say hello to Kipling the Tiger and Chewy, Mo, and Maple the Sloth family. Grab your ice cream and your seat on the train for a ride through the whole zoo.



5. Sip a craft beer at Southern Prohibition

A craft brewery in the heart of downtown, SoPro (as the locals call it) creates excellent craft beers.  PINK fluff is returning just in time for V-Day! They made some changes and the results are a new and improved version bursting with fluffy marshmallow, cherry candy flavor, and a truer pink color. Who wouldn’t be impressed with a pink craft beer? Cheers!


6. Go on a progressive food tour through the city

On your mark, get set, GO….on a progressive food tour through Hattiesburg. Start your date with a specialty coffee at Mulvi’s Coffee Shop, then head to Mario’s for an authentic Italian meal, and end your day relaxing on the patio at Patio 44 for some bread pudding and drinks. Bon Appetit!  



7. Check out the HBURG Public Art Trail   

As you wander around Hattiesburg checking out the Public Art Trail you might stumble upon the tiniest museum in Mississippi, the Pocket Museum. The museum's location is a secret but you’re sure to find it on your public art adventure. Be inspired together!


8. Make it a Spa Day

Spend the day at Lotus Downtown getting pampered with a couple’s hot stone massage or a pedicure. Even better, they have a Valentine’s Sweetheart Package that includes wine and chocolate. Spoil yourself and your date!


9. Have a friendly competition of Axe Throwing

A family-friendly urban axe throwing experience. Kick back and relax with a coke or craft beer and get your game on! Located next to Fountain Park in the heart of historic downtown. Wow your date with your ax-throwing skills!
