Visit Jackson

Jackson, Mississippi is affectionally known as the “City with Soul” and for good reason…  Located in the 20th State in our Nation, that was admitted to the Union in 1817 — it’s a convenient and easy drive from nearby cities that include Memphis, Birmingham, Mobile, New Orleans, Shreveport and more.  Even Dallas is a straight shot across I-20, about 400 miles away.  Jackson is home to nearly 30 different museums, the Freedom Trail that’s important to the Civil Rights movement in the nation runs right through Jackson, and the quaint Fondren District shouldn’t be missed as it features unique shops, local cafes and restaurants, galleries and more.  During our live broadcast of America’s #1 Travel Radio Show on 6 February 2021, VisitJackson’s CEO Rickey Thigpen, and a Jackson native, joined us via our show hotline to share some of his city with the nation, and offer up enticing reasons to come visit.  To hear the full interview that ran across our national network of 465+ weekly affiliates airing RMWorldTravel with Robert & Mary Carey and Rudy Maxa, click on the play arrow below …
