Hattiesburg The Hub City
Posted On: 10/26/2013 1:06:49 PM
I just recently moved back to Mississippi from TN. I lived in Jackson before my move to TN and it was decent. I am looking to move from Hattiesburg because it is really small and not widely diverse. I would love also to be in a city that has a wide array of things to do, Hattiesburg is very limited. Hattiesburg is really a place to maybe retire if you want a slow pace southern as southern can get down home feeling. I'm not there yet..The people here just kind of stay to themselves unless you are family or friends through school. I haven't found them to be as friendly and welcoming as TN. This is not a bad thing but I have been living in my apt for over two years and I really don't know my neighbor across the breeze-way. It's more of an hi and bye kind of way of living. I would love to see more art museums and cultural events but that really doesn't happen here. Hattiesburg sits right between Biloxi and Jackson..so, it's really like a small town with hotels inbetween so you can rest and keep on moving if you weren't born and raised here. Seriously if you need a peaceful place to retire and live off a major highway in towns such as Petal, MS or Seminary, MS then this is the place for you. If you are ready to go out and tear up the town..you may want to rethink this spot and head on to Jackson the capital city of Mississippi or Biloxi for a view of the Gulf Coast and several casinos. I'm here to learn more about the culture and cost of living in cities such as, Miami Beach, New York, Dallas, Atlanta,to name a few...
