Visitors flying to Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport (JAN) will find themselves in the heart of the city that s often referred to as the City with Soul . The airport is located 6 miles east of Jackson and a quick taxi ride will take all visitors from tarmac to the township where mild winters and hot summers have made it an appealing destination to travellers all year round.
Visitors can expect a great taste of southern down-home cooking, jazz and blues live music, and historic Civil War and Civil Rights museums and sites. Some key places to visit are the Medgar Evers home, Eudora Welty s former abode, Battlefield Park and the War Memorial Museum. A relatively new attraction is a driving tour of the local places where Hollywood Movie 'The Help' was filmed.
Several local clubs or juke joints have live blues performances throughout the week, most located around the Farish Street area, but many different types of live music can be found in the city each night, making the nightlife varied and exciting.
Cuisine ranges from Southern Style to fresh seafood and gourmet offerings, and those visitors who are keen to shop should head to the Fondren District or Highland Village.
