US experts advice required, what to do in Jacskon MS?
I might be travelling to Jackson MS later this year.
I was wondering if it might be worth adding some days to do some sightseeing.
People I've talked to say that Jackson itself has nothing worth seeing or doing and that its best to not even leave the hotel as the city is dangerous. Is this so? They also said, go to nearby Vicksburg. Is this a better idea? Anybody done that? Others have said go to Memphis or New Orleans. Maybe those are a bit far off course. Any other suggestions of dos and don'ts in that area?
