    Petal has been known to be a great city with a small-town feel. It's close enough to Hattiesburg for residents to enjoy shopping, food, and education. As time goes on, Petal is now growing and opening new businesses for residents to enjoy. There are boutiques, restaurants, coffee shops, and more! On top of all that, Petal has one of the highest-ranked school districts in the state. Petal is growing every day!

    It used to be expected that you'd make the short trip to Hattiesburg for most of your outings, but Petal residents are finding it easier to access entertainment, dining, and shopping without leaving the Friendly City. Several new restaurants have opened and there are three coffee shops in town now, plus clothing boutiques of different styles give residents access to fashion choices without going to West Hattiesburg. Not only are there more choices in the number of businesses choosing to call Petal home, but there is a growing number of recreational spaces and events open to the public. The Petal Farmer's Market is bigger and better this year after relocating from Relay Park to Main Street, and 2019 will be the second year for the Star Spangled Celebration on the River- a spectacular 4th of July fireworks celebration that takes place at Petal River Park.

    The days will soon be cooling off and the smell of camp fires will be in the air. If you're looking for an escape to the wilderness, it's closer than you think. The Long Leaf Horse Camp and Trails are located between Laurel and Richton, about 30 minutes from Petal and up Hwy 42, and then a left onto Hwy 15, entering into the Chickasawhay District of The DeSoto National Forest. This is not to be confused with The Longleaf Trace, "Rails to Trails".

    This is one of my favorite places to get away to. I can hear the wind wooing me from on top of the Longleaf pines, to go a little deeper into the nature to clear the clutter from my mind. It doesn't get much better than when I'm out there in the woods on my loyal mount with a group of friends. Hope you enjoy. "Life is good".

    Petal is a close knit community and still has that small town feel, but it is growing in popularity with homebuyers. Everyone in the area knows how high Petal Schools are ranked. Petal High School won the US News Bronze award based on test scores and student-teacher ratio. Petal High School is grades 9-12 and has approximately 1100 students. Because of the school's popularity many great new neighborhoods have been developed over the last few years, such as Trailwood, Pecan Lakes, North Fork, South Fork, Edgemere, and Longleaf.

    This growing little town has plenty to offer, with several mom and pop shops/restaurants, but still several chains. There is plenty local to choose from. However, if you want even more options, Petal is located only 10 minutes from Hattiesburg. Petal is fast growing, but still has that small town feel! During football season, on game day, the high school front lawn is covered with tents and tailgaters of supportive Petalites getting pumped for the game, ready to holler for their Petal Panthers!
