Doing Business in JXN is Good For Your Soul!

Located in Central Mississippi at the intersection of interstates 55 and 20, Jackson is a lively capital city with plenty of southern hospitality. The city provides more than 2,000 hotel rooms that include full service, limited service and boutique hotels. With mild winters and warm summers, the weather is always right for a multitude of activities. Jackson is home to several markers on the Mississippi Blues Trail, Writers Trail and Freedom Trail. Offering both indoor and outdoor activities, year-round, any time is a great time to discover the City With Soul.

The Blues was born in Mississippi and Jackson is the perfect place to hear it. On Historic Farish Street, listen to music at Johnny T’s Bistro & Bar then head down the street to F. Jones Corner for late-night entertainment. Every Monday, the Central Mississippi Blues Society hosts Blue Monday at Hal & Mal’s, a weekly event celebrating up-and-coming musicians and local legends.
