HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A popular, picturesque spot in Hattiesburg was featured on The BLT’s Mississippi Bucket List, which is a blog for Lifestyle and Travel.

The All-American Rose Garden nestled in the front of USM’s campus snagged the No. 3 spot on the blog’s state bucket list.

Many residents and students know this vibrant rose garden is practically a work of art with its 32 separate beds of roses and some even having their own hybrid of rose. And many know the No. 1 rule while strolling through the garden is to look, but don’t touch! One could be fined up to $500 per rose.

From the Delta to the Gulf Coast, the post features many popular destinations for out-of-state travel seekers and adventurous residents. Some intriguing destinations include listening to live music at the Ground Zero Blues Club, eating a sweet treat at Deep South Pops and taking a stroll through William Faulkner's home.

    Markus Kittrell is well aware when people speak of Wayne County football, the assumption is the conversation will be of the public school War Eagles. Kitrell and his teammates would like to change that a bit this fall. “When you say Wayne County, everybody knows Wayne County High School, but it’s time for us to put it out there about Wayne Academy, where everybody will know about us,” said Kittrell, a 6-foot-4, 300-pound, two-way lineman for the Jaguars.
