Welcome to Jackson, MS!

Jackson's recreational and entertainment options appeal to a variety of people. Country clubbers are at home in Jackson's active social scene, and culture buffs will find plenty to do. Museums like the Mississippi Museum of Art and the Eudora Welty House & Garden are small but well-maintained. And downtown's popular Fondren district is a vibrant collection of restaurants, bars and entertainment venues.

If you're a hunter or a fisherman, you'll feel right at home in Jackson, but hikers, rock climbers, cyclists and rafters will find that the city proper lacks outdoor spaces designed for their hobbies. Still, several bodies of water, such as the Ross Barnett Reservoir, are great places to kayak, paddleboard and even sail. If you prefer to watch sports, the Mississippi Braves -----" the Atlanta Braves' AA farm team -----" play baseball in the suburb of Pearl. Meanwhile, the Mynelle Gardens and the Jackson State University Botanical Garden offer a more relaxing outdoor --experience.
