Poplarville, MS is close enough to New Orleans, Louisiana with the creole heritage and Mardi Gras; North to the Mississippi Gulf Coast with seafood and beaches and casinos; South to Hattiesburg with city living in country style, festivals and Southern Heritage. I love being country with the cities surrounding me so you have any kind of activity you want to be involved in.

Typical small town. More churches than people. Great restaurants if you can guess when they are open. Absolutely zero nightlife. Best schools in the state. Community College also #1 in the state. The Nothing else for kids to do.
Small town with friendly people..all medical services nearby..city services are top notch..a great community college ...easy access to interstate
