Home Town Tourist
Every now and then we love to spend an afternoon with the kids meandering around downtown…getting coffee, visiting the bookstore, and walking through the parks are just a few of our favorite things to do.
It usually involves lots of jumping games and climbing trees to entertain us along the way.
I was recently asked if Laurel has kept it’s small town charm since the airing of HGTV’s HomeTown. I would answer that, “Absolutely, it has!” Laurel has always been charming and it makes me happy to see other people coming in and enjoying it with us. I love sharing the things I love, including my town! One of the things I like best about the folks in Laurel is how they pull you in and make you feel like you’re part of the community.
If you haven’t already planned a trip, what are you waiting for??
Here’s a few of our favorite family friendly spots!
Lauren Rogers Museum of Art-Mississippi’s first art museum and always a MUST SEE! There will be a Leontyne Price exhibit soon I hear!
Trustmark Art Park- A great little space to let the kids run around that’s in the heart of downtown.
Cottage Books- this little book nook is located inside Southern Antiques (a great store to walk through…it has 2 floors of shopping!)
Handmade – looking for an indoor activity?? Handmade is your place to get CREATIVE.
Laurel Mainstreet has a ton of wonderful events throughout the year as well…coming soon is the Magnolia State Bank Chili Cook Off!
YWCO of Laurel – family bingo night as well as classes and activities for all ages
See you in Laurel, friends!
