I have lived in Jackson for most of my life! It is where i was raised. In all honesty its not the most exciting town and I find myself complaining about it all the time but it does have a few things that are good. In the sections below there is more details on some of the good places to go in Jackson!
1401 Daniel Rd, Jackson, MI 49202
If you like ice cream this is a great place to go! Their ice cream is great and they give pretty big portions for a reasonable price! If you are brave you can try the dare to be great, it is 20 scoops of ice cream. I think that if you eat it all your name gets on a plaque on the wall or something like that! I would assume they still have it but I could be wrong, but when I was a kid they had a guest book for people to sign. It was kind of interesting to see that people from all over the place had been there and signed the book!
The Cascade Falls
1401 S Brown St, Jackson, MI 49203
The falls are a nice thing to go see. It is a man-made waterfall type thing. You can climb the steps and go to the top of the falls as well as sit at the bottom and enjoy them. They look really nice at night because there are colored lights underneath the water that lights it up! It's something that can be neat for all ages. Kids love climbing to the top and waiting to get sprayed by the water! Don't worry though just because you walk to the top doesn't mean you will get wet! Just don't get too close to the edge if you want to stay dry!
Cascades is a park so when you get done you can always walk around the park; play on the toys, get ice cream, walk my a little pond, got on a picnic, etc.
