Spring Break in HBURG

Whether you're planning to #VisitHBURG or are looking for #Staycation fun, we have you covered with ideas for a great spring break in Hattiesburg! 


Jump into spring break with Updown Trampoline Park! Challenge your friends to a jousting tournament or channel your inner NBA player for an intense game of basketball on the dunk court. Build up the courage to leap into a pit of foam blocks and don't miss playing a game of dodgeball. Be sure to bring your energy for additional activities such as lasertag, arcade games, and obstacle courses!



Race the clock to break free at College Town Escape Rooms! Grab a few (or a dozen) of your closest friends for a challenging day or solving riddles. New rooms just added! Fun for all ages!



Get your spring break "bowling" at Hub Bowling Lanes. Offcially re-opening this week with a brand new look and upgrades, Hub Bowling Lanes invites you to enjoy their striking specials daily. Check their Facebook page for more details. 

Enjoy the great outdoors with a run or ride down the Longleaf Trace, an afternoon filled with animals, a day on the river, or by splattering your friends with paint.


With specialty drinks and the re-opening of the kid favorite Splash Pad, you’re sure to stay cool while you check out all the animals at Hattiesburg Zoo’s Spring Break Adventure. Make time while you’re at the Zoo for the High Ropes Adventure Course, the interactive, barrier-free Wallaby exhibit, and a snow cone, too!


It’s every man for himself at Eagle Action Sportz! Hattiesburg’s premier paintball field is perfect for any skill level, so gear up and pick your hiding spot because the competition starts now! Try one of the three tournament style fields or get carried away and try them all. Catch your breath between games at on-site picnic tables.  


Leave your cares at home and float with Black Creek Canoe Rental. Choose between a kayak or canoe and explore the scenic sights of DeSoto National Forest. Fun and easy trips for groups of all ages! 


Apply your sunscreen and prepare yourself for a break filled with baseball games. Support the USM Golden Eagles and William Carey Crusaders on the diamond! Don’t strike out, take advantage of two homerun weekends!


No trip to HBURG would be complete without a little art or shopping!


Cozy up to a bowl of popcorn and enjoy a film at The Grand Theatre or Southwest Theaters. With movies, old and new, you can sit back, relax, and have a grand ole’ time!


Calling all Shakespeare and poetry buffs! Munch on a giant turkey leg and watch William Shakespeare’s “A Midnight Summer Dream.” An hour prior to the performance, absorb the Renaissance-inspired atmosphere and experience numerous food and drink vendors, games, crafts, and live music. 


Spend the weekend browsing merchandise, old and new, at The Lucky Rabbit. Make sure to stop by this junk-joint full of antiques, vintage items, handmade goods, and more. Hours of the Lucky Rabbit vary. Lucky, you! On March 9, get lost in the endless amount of retail at the outdoor flea market and leave with a bag full of antiques!


Once you’ve crafted your own HBURG spring break adventure, enjoy a local dining option! Hattiesburg is home to many kid-friendly restaurants like Ed’s Burger Joint, Plaid Rhino, Glory Bound Gyro Co., and South Mouth Deli
