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:


Equinox Coffee

Equinox Coffee, known for its relaxed atmosphere and excellent coffee, is found on Hardy Street. Along with their coffee and bubble tea, Equinox is a great place to stop by for a yummy ice pop! What will it be? Vanilla, chocolate, or coffee? Or maybe you’re wanting a fruit-based pop like the strawberry, mixed berry, and orange vanilla. Whatever you’re feeling, Equinox 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!



Conni Cone Snowballs

Ask any Hattiesburger where to get a good snowball, and Conni Cone will surely come up. Located on Old Highway 11, Conni Cone’s extensive menu is sure to satisfy your summer sweet tooth. Conni Cone has something for people of all ages, so whether you want to keep it simple and stop by for a watermelon snowball or you want to bring the kids by for a Tinkerbell snowball, Conni Cone has you covered. And don’t forget the toppings! Is your mouth watering yet?



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!



Walnut Square Gifts & Stationery

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 Milkshake Monday, Two-Scoop Tuesday, and Waffle Cone Wednesday. Add your topping for the perfect cold treat and continue enjoying the beautiful summer day.
