The Lucy Rabbit
217 Mobile Street
Located in the Hawkins Hardware Building, which was built in the 1920s, The Lucky Rabbit sells unique antiques. The first weekend of every month, antique vendors gather to sell their vintage wares. Live music and giveaways give it a party atmosphere. Make sure to come on the last day - most vendors are open to haggling and are often severely discounted.
The All American Rose Garden at USM
This garden lies on The University of Southern Mississippi's campus. With over 750 hybrid-T and Grandiflora patented rosebushes, this garden is open year round and is free to the public to view. It's a great place to stop and rest if you're on a tight schedule.
Pep's Point Water Park
382 Peps Point Road
This waterpark is great for families. The spring-fed park has waterslides, a sandy beach, paddleboats, and canoes. Waterfront campsites and cookout grills also lie around the area. Away from the lake, dry activities include miniature golf, basketball, volleyball, and a game room. Open the second week of May through the second week of September.
