The Great Outdoors are Waiting for You

Cascades park, jackson, michigan- mary britten

Jackson’s great outdoors are the perfect prescription for the four-wall blues, with all sorts of sports and recreation to cure what ails you. Miles of trails and thousands of acres of protected forest surround Jackson’s city center, all with their own reasons to get you on your feet. Take a kayaking or fishing trip on some of the area’s bountiful lakes- or grab your binoculars for birdwatching in the presence of hundreds of native bird species.
