Join us on a holiday to Jackson

Jackson, Mississippi is a city that isn’t easily defined.

The state capital is home to artsy neighbourhoods like Fondren, a hub of local music and with an area with a distinct international outlook. Then there’s its busy Downtown, packed to the brim with many of the better-known Jackson Mississippi landmarks, notably the museums that call this settlement home. In fact, the only thing you’re sure to find in all the Jackson neighbourhoods are restaurants serving up the best of traditional Southern cooking.

With Newmarket Holidays, you can delve into the best of what this historic city has to offer. The Mississippi Museum of Art is the largest museum in the entire state and houses a collection of unique works from local and international artists, ranging from collages to sculptures. It’s also set in beautifully landscaped gardens – a serene experience from start to finish. Other institutions include the interactive Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, a recently opened but vital centre housed in a magnificent, modern building.

While you can’t visit Jackson and miss out on its museums, that’s not all the city has to offer. LeFleur’s Bluff State Park is perched on the edge of the city limits but feels like it could be a million miles away. Aside from its expansive grounds, which include hiking trails, a campsite, and a 9-hole golf course, it is also home to the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science. A truly tranquil experience – even with the gators swimming about!

Up and coming neighbourhoods thriving alongside grand old ones, a rich vein of culture running through the city, and relatively untouched by mass tourism: Jackson could be your next favourite USA destination.

Food and drink in Jackson

If you love chocolate then the Mississippi Mud Pie is for you.

 

An explosion of cocoa-goodness, it consists of a chocolate cookie crust, topped with a layer of fudgy cake, and chocolate streusel. Finally, it’s drizzled with ganache to send you into chocolate heaven.

Soul food makes the South. Any homestyle restaurant in Jackson will leave you wanting more (despite the hefty portions), but favourites like fried chicken, cornbread, and okra are not to be missed. A true delight, be prepared to dream of these dishes when you’re back home.
