Laurel, MS used to be small, with county lines surrounding all corners. I’ve been here for 35 years, and it has boomed, with locally owned businesses thriving. But, with success, comes a lot of new people moving here because of the “show,” like a giant pimple ready to pop.

For someone moving to Laurel, MS, it is a quaint town. There is a beautiful downtown that has stores for all ages. Also, there are many locally-owned restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. The town is surrounding by hiking trails and rivers for outdoor activities.
