Recently named the ‘50th Fastest Growing Metro Area in the Country,’ Greater Hattiesburg, situated in the vibrant culture of
Southern Mississippi, has distinguished itself
as a retirement destination. With a steadily
growing population of nearly 150,000,
Greater Hattiesburg boasts a lifestyle that
attracts a diverse blend of culture and commerce. Nicknamed the “Hub City,” Greater
Hattiesburg is a regional nucleus of activity.
New Orleans, Mobile, Jackson and the Gulf
Coast all lie within a two hour drive, and
each contributes as much to recreation and
business as they do to culture and cuisine.
As Baby Boomers reach retirement, it is
certain that quality of life will be a major
deciding factor for anyone looking for a
place to settle during their retirement years.
Greater Hattiesburg’s low cost of living,
coupled with great schools, engaging area
attractions and recreational activities, along
with a great selection of shopping, dining
and cultural events, make the city a fabulous
place to live, work and play.
The area offers several amenities and
programs geared specifically for retirees.
One of the most popular educational ac-
tivities for retirees comes through the
University of Southern Mississippi’s Osher
Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI)—an
association of active men and women 50
years of age or older who seek to explore
stimulating learning experiences while de-
veloping new friendships.
It is the balance between business and
community, progress and stability, that
quality of place and quality of life are
found. Greater Hattiesburg, planted firmly
in both heritage and development, offers an
A Hub for Life!
