Spend some time in Jackson, Michigan and you’ll feel like it was made just for you. We are buzzing with art, breweries, wineries, nature and history, combined with Midwest charm. With ample hotel space, venue options to fit nearly any group size, and great location, Jackson is the ideal area to hold your next event!
Ideal Midwestern Location
Conveniently located at the intersection of I-94 and US 127, Jackson is an easy drive, within a three-hour radius of Chicago, Cleveland, and the Canadian border in Windsor. With the oldest continually operating passenger rail station in the heart of downtown Jackson, Amtrak makes multiple daily stops here.
An Impressive City Built for Groups
Jackson has been hosting groups for nearly two centuries. When the first group gathered here to form the Republican Party they may not have known it then, but they were about to make history. Since this day in 1854, Jackson has been on the move. Having been home to 25 car manufacturers, our love of everything motors can still be experienced as you feel the rush of racing at NASCAR’s fastest track or go on a private tour of a rare car collection that is a true Michigan treasure.
This is just the start of what makes this incredible city tick. Wine so good former First Lady Michelle Obama has served it, and a beer with the perfect mixture of ingredients was named North American IPA of the Year. Did we mention Michigan’s first state prison was built here and a museum within the grounds of an operating penitentiary can be found here?
Don’t forget about Mother Nature. Uncover picturesque views on 200 miles of waterways; relax in nature’s tranquility while watching hundreds of native and migratory birds, and 125 lakes provide so much fishing you might sprout gills yourself.
