Review of Hattiesburg, Mississippi

A great place to live
Star Rating - 6/24/2009
Hattiesburg has two universities, the University of Southern Mississippi and William Carey University which has a new medical school. There are numerous community colleges.

The drive to New Orleans is 1 1/2 hours, Gulf Coast 1 hour, Gulf Shores, Alabama 2 1/2 hours and Destin, Florida 3 hours.

Hattiesburg and the surrounding area have great law enforcement and fire departments with low crime rates.

Hattiesburg local government is multi-cultural, efficient and cooperative. Mayor Johnny Dupree has been re-elected and has done an outstanding job.

It is hot here from June to October but there rest of the year is fabulous.
