Plan Your Hattiesburg Vacation

Located at the intersection of two major highways, U.S. 49 and Interstate 59, Hattiesburg—nicknamed Hub City—began as a thriving lumber town with associated railroad lines. Now, as the fourth-largest city in the state, Hattiesburg is home to University of Southern Mississippi, William Carey College, and Camp Shelby, the largest National Guard training base east of the Mississippi River.

But Hattiesburg is also known as a stopover town—a convenient, friendly place for travelers passing through on their way to New Orleans or the Gulf Coast.
