The City of Jackson still requires facial coverings as part of the "Mayor's Safe Recovery Jackson Order," now in effect.
City With Soul
Jackson, MS is known as the City With Soul because of her perseverance and her triumphant spirit. She’s birthed many historical marks that have shaped this country and beyond, from Civil Rights to Civil War, to music, to world-class museums and exhibits, to thriving festivals and events, to award-winning attractions to James Beard Foundation chefs and restaurants; she has so much to offer.
Steeped in southern culture, Jackson is home to a multitude of world-class painters, sculptors, dancers, actors, architects, photographers, filmmakers, musicians, and artisans of many disciplines. The city pulses with music from classical to inspirational, home-grown gospel, blues, jazz, rock ‘n roll, R&B and more that can be found all around town.
Beautifully changing seasons offer numerous fall and holiday events rich with tradition, surprising spring flings for shaking off winter’s chill and laid back summer celebrations that detour off the fast lane.
Jackson’s a soulful kind of place for a weekend getaway, family fun, a group tour, a reunion, a convention or a small business meeting.
