About Hattiesburg GeoTour
Presented by Visit Hattiesburg, the Hattiesburg GeoTour is the first of its kind in the state of Mississippi. With more than 40 geocache hides, Hattiesburg offers one of only 100 active, official GeoTours worldwide.
Ready to explore Hattiesburg? You can complete this GeoTour during a weekend trip to The Hub City, all while enjoying other things the city has to offer, including restaurants, shopping and local events.
So, what exactly is geocaching? Geocaching is a free, outdoor activity in which participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) or mobile device to hide and seek containers called “geocaches” or “caches.” These caches are hidden at specific locations marked by coordinates all over the world, and in our case, Hattiesburg.
How it works
