Jackson; The City with Soul

Jackson is an affordable yet exciting up-and-coming city in Mississippi. Though, I have visited Mississippi on many occasions, I have not had the pleasure of visiting Jackson. But I will say that after watching the Visit Jackson docu-series, I have become fascinated with the culture and their strong sense of diversity. So, I plan to add Jackson as a destination on my travel wish list.

I’m sure that after you check out the docu-series, you will also want to add Jackson to your list. This is a city that has something for everyone; food, culture, art, entertainment and much more.


If you’re a food fanatic, the food scene is one to check out. There’s a culinary variety to please just about anyone, with restaurants like Big Apple Inn on Farish St., Johnny T’s Bistro & Bar and CS’s just to name a few.

Jackson is much more than soul food but if that’s what you’re looking for, you can find it too. The Crawdad Hole is another great spot to eat – there you can experience a crawfish boil like the locals.
