Hattiesburg Travel Guide
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.
