Jackson, officially the City of Jackson, is the capital city and largest urban center of the U.S. Take a break from the city and head to Ridgeland Bike Trail and Mississippi Petrified Forest. Let the collections at Eudora Welty House and Garden and Mississippi Museum of Art capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Vicksburg (Jesse Brent Lower Mississippi River Museum and Interpretive Center & Anchuca Mansion). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Mississippi Agricultural & Forestry Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Andrew's Cathedral, get a sense of history and politics at Mississippi Governor's Mansion, and admire the landmark architecture of Old Capitol Museum.
