Things to Do
Jackson features more than 30 interactive museums focusing on sports, agriculture, science, history, aviation, art, music, and civil rights.
With numerous historical markers on the Freedom Trail, Blues Trail, and Writer’s Trail and the International Museum of Muslim Cultures - America’s first Islamic history and culture museum - Jackson is filled with one-of-a-kind experiences. Find fun in Fondren, the city's hip and eclectic arts neighborhood. Or book it to one of the country's most intact literary homes, the Eudora Welty House & Gardens. Kids will love the new LeFleur's Bluff Playground - the largest in the southeast - and adults are raving about Fertile Ground Brewery at Belhaven Town Center.
