West Hattiesburg Reviews
West Hattiesburg is a beautiful, growing city. There are lots of new and booming businesses in West Hattiesburg that are fun to visit. For example, Lovie's is a fun, friendly gift shop. Southern Market is also, a fun place to visit. Hattiesburg has always been one of my favorite places and it continues to grow and become more beautiful.
West Hattiesburg is a great place to raise a family! The Lamar County School District is one of the top in the state, and it is a great, safe community.
Hattiesburg has been my home for 14 years. It is a great place to live. It has an exceptional public school district, which I attend. I always feel safe in Hattiesburg. Our community in Oak Grove is fairly small. It seems as if everyone knows everyone. The schools and churches and very involved in the community. I have chosen to continue living in Hattiesburg and plan on attending The University of Southern Mississippi when I graduate in the spring of 2018.
