Your family is going to love Jackson, Mississippi. Your teenagers will attend first rate schools such as Bailey Magnet or Calloway High, while younger students will learn at such schools as Flowood Elementary or Powell Junior High. And when the school day's done, they'll find plenty to do. You could take the whole gang out to Golf World for a day of putt-putt and other attractions everyone's sure to love. Or, you could take in a live performance at Actor's Playhouse. Some of the shows even have free admission. Younger kids will really like the Mississippi Children's Museum. Load your kids up and spend a whole day of hands on fun that's educational as well. Or for a day in the great outdoors, you don't even have to leave the city. Come on down to LeFleur's Bluff State Park and enjoy cookouts, boating, fishing, hiking, and all that Mother Nature has to offer.1 Mothers and fathers alike are going to have a great time enjoying Jackson with the children.
