Jackson has to offer

Being the crossroads of Michigan, Jackson County is the perfect location for your next group outing. There’s truly something for everyone.

Learn Jackson’s pivotal role in the Underground Railroad as your tour downtown Jackson and visit the historical locations significant in the journey to freedom. This tour is available as a self-guided walking tour or a guided tour with a step on. Visit this website for more information on guided tours.  

Explore Jackson’s storied prison history with a tour of Jackson’s “Old Prison” by Original Jackson Historic Prison Tours.

Be inspired as you walk or drive through Jackson’s Bright Walls murals and experience the creative beauty for yourself. Take the self-guided tour when you download the Experience Jackson Tours app.

Marvel at St. Demetrius Orthodox Church’s floor-to-ceiling frescoes or the prized artifacts and galleries inside the Ella Sharp Museum. 

Get a breath of fresh air while on horseback, on a birdwatching tour, or paddling one of Jackson’s waterways.

Get your entertainment Renaissance-style at Baughman Theater, where the Michigan Shakespeare Festival features live plays from history’s most renowned playwright.

Whether you’re in town for a quick trip or a multi-day excursion, we look forward to accommodating your group of any size.
