Jackson MS Senior Living
Jackson is not only the capital, it’s the most populous city in Mississippi, making it the hub of culture and social activity. If you’re looking for a great place to retire in the southern U.S., Jackson might be the answer.
Known as the “City with Soul,” Jackson is famous for its Gospel, Blues and R&B. In addition to a rich musical heritage, Jackson also has a significant cultural history highlighted by a number of museums including Eudora Welty House Museum, the City of Jackson Fire Museum, Manship House Museum and more. For more modern interests, try visiting the Jackson Zoo, Mississippi Arts Center, Smith Park or Thalia Mara Hall. Jackson also boasts a botanical garden, five community centers, golf courses and ten miles of walking trails. If you like getting outside, there’s plenty to do.
There’s also plenty for the sports fan. Enjoy baseball, soccer, basketball and football at Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium, Mississippi Coliseum or Smith Wills Stadium.
While Jackson can be hot in the summer time, the winters are mild – perfect for seniors affected by the cold. At the same time, if you like the thrill of a good storm, Jackson is said to hear thunder boom up to a fifth of the year.
Finally, Jackson was named one of the top ten friendliest cities in the United States for 2013. So if you enjoy chatting with your neighbors and appreciate old-fashioned hospitality, you’ll feel right at home.
