Fall in Love with Hattiesburg

The Fall season in any college town is alive with excitement, but Hattiesburg takes it up a notch. In fact, you’ll find a whole lot more than just football – although, who DOESN’T love a little pig skin?!? Hattiesburg has emerged as a place that defines the new South. Known as the Hub City, HBURG is abundant with art, craft beer, outdoor activities and so much more (like Golden Eagle football, of course). Spend your visit to Hattiesburg discovering what’s new and getting to know this premier city in the Gulf South.


Southern Prohibition Brewing is a craft brewery that, like Hattiesburg, melds tradition and experimentation. Soak in a tour of the brewery and taste their variety of ten drafts in the taproom. You’ll find the Mercury Pizza food truck, complete with a brick fire oven in the yard, so grab a pie while you play kickball pool and sip a pint.


Feeling hungry? Head to HBURG Oct. 6 through 13 for the second annual Hattiesburg Restaurant Week. Join foodies from near and far for an OctoberFEAST! This year’s event will highlight specialty hamburgers – a nod to the loved nickname “Hattiesburger.” Become a certified HBURG Foodie by downloading the Foodie Guide and taking a bite out of Restaurant Week.  


As the weather cools, take it all in downtown at Live at Five on Oct. 4, 11, 18 and 25. This free, outdoor live music series is the perfect winddown after a long week. Don’t forget your chair, blanket, or cooler. Or, if you’re looking for something to get your heart going, journey to the Longleaf Trace. Converted from an old railroad route, the Trace is a 41-mile, multi-use, paved trail that begins in Hattiesburg and travels through other towns along the way.

Enjoy your visit to the hub of activity as you venture around Hattiesburg!
