A hospitality that is uniquely southern, an embrace of diversity that is distinctly the City With Soul!

Our vast culinary offerings, museums, and historical sites – many of which helped shape the culture of the United States – are only a few reflections of the soul of Jacksonians.

With hundreds of restaurants to choose from, including mom-and-pop eateries to James Beard Award-winning fine dining, nearly two-dozen award-winning museums – including the first museum of Islamic culture in the US, visual and performing arts, literature, music, and history, Jackson is the place you will want to visit again and again.

If you’re traveling the historic Natchez Trace Parkway through Central Mississippi, Lefleur’s Bluff State Park provides a rich green spot in the heart of urban Jackson. In addition to fishing, picnic spots, nature trails, and 28 sites for tent and RV camping, you’ll get a strong sense of nature while you explore all the city has to offer.

Exit at milepost 92 at US 49 South or milepost 105, south on I-55 to explore!
