Y’all have you been following my IG Post and Stories?

If you did then you would have found out that I really enjoyed myself in Jackson, Mississippi! To be honest I did not know what to expect before going but I when Visit Jackson asked if I wanted to come I jumped at the opportunity. If you like Museums and incredible then this is the place for you!

I have to note that Jackson has had a tattered past and they are working really hard to improve the image of their amazing city! I also want to mention Paul Wolf from Visit Jackson who greeted us and was our point of contact was an awesome host and if def gave us the 411 on the history of Jackson and cast vision of what is to come and we can’t thank him enough!

So let’s jump into why Jackson was amazing and why this city should be on your radar to visit in the future. I must also mention that Jackson has gone above and beyond to follow the CDC Guidelines so that visitors can be a safe as possible!
