February Fun in HBURG

February Fun in HBURG 

It’s finally Saturday, and you just can’t handle another game of Monopoly or watching Paw Patrol AGAIN. When you don’t want to stay in, but it’s a little too chilly to be outside, check out these entertaining indoor options in HBURG!


For fun which doesn’t cost an arm-y and a leg, step back in time at our two military museums. The Mississippi Armed Forces Museum at Camp Shelby is comprised of eight galleries dedicated to honoring Mississippians who have served. Located in a former USO building from WWII, the African American Military History Museum in the East Sixth Street museum district Downtown Hattiesburg remembers the service and sacrifices of African Americans throughout military history, specifically focusing on those from Hattiesburg and the surrounding areas. Visit during February (Black History Month) for a special exhibit on WWII: The War in Print.


Sugar, yes, please! Fuel up on something sweet at one our local bakeries before letting the kids burn off the extra energy at KidsRule! Family Fun Center in West Hattiesburg or Updown Trampoline Park in Midtown with jump time or a game of laser tag. This winter, there’s no need to make laps around the house when even the most energetic guys and gals can bounce for hours around town! For an outing that is slightly tamer, play a round at Lunar Golf in Turtle Creek Mall or bowl a turkey at Hub Bowling Lanes (we won’t tell if you need the gutter guards).


Challenge accepted! Solve a series of riddles before the clock runs out at College Town Escape Rooms, perfect for individuals and groups of all sizes and ages. For competitive play that isn’t timed, check out GattiTown Arcade and Fun for arcade classics like skeeball and Pac-Man, alongside high-tech offerings, bumper cars and laser tag. Collect enough tickets, and you may even go home with a couple of glitter tattoos or a neon-stuffed animal.


Ready for awards season? After a long day of running, playing, and jumping, relax while you watch the latest flick at one of our two movie theaters featuring the latest amenities like recliner seating and bars with full menus. For a more cultural experience, plan a visit to the Saenger Theater to screen films that have been specially chosen for Black History Month. You can check out the complete listing here!


Daylight Savings never bothered us, anyway. Don’t let the days getting darker earlier stop your fun. Grab a cocktail at a local pub while you listen to live music any night of the week or head downtown to Southern Prohibition for a brewery tour and a pint. After all, a perfect way to cap off a day of fun in Hburg is an impeccable nightcap. Lastly, don’t miss yoga at the taproom every Saturday at 11AM to stretch yourself into relaxation.


Whatever your interest, Hattiesburg has something to get you out and about and having fun!
