BEST HIPPIE HANGOUT: Blueberry Patch

It began in the late ’70s as a place for likeminded folks to enjoy music, art and friendship. Now, 30 years later, the Blueberry Patch — a small hippie enclave on an acre of land in Gulfport — is still going strong with free jams, open mics, art exhibits and live music four times a month. And instead of dwindling over time, the gathering spot owned by resident Dallas Bohrer only seems to be getting more popular.
