An area of Jackson that you surely do not want to miss is the Farish Street Historical District. You will just completely fall in love with this beautiful neighborhood that stretches along several bustling streets including Fortification, Mill, Lamar and Amite. While you and your charter bus friends have a chance to explore in this area, you will find a slew of gorgeous old homes along with other historical buildings. Many of these old buildings are known to have been built by former slaves who lived in Jackson. Do not forget that you will have a fabulous opportunity to do a little bit of browsing and/or buying in some of the local shops that line the streets here.
Your next stop could be over on 1119 Pinehurst Street where you will find Eudora Welty's House and Garden. On the premises at this stunning location, you will be able to explore the beautiful gardens, which have been completely restored over the years. Complete with an array of magnificent plants and flowers, this garden is even speckled with beautiful areas that are separated by old-style arbors and trellises. You and your charter bus group will be able to catch a glimpse of such wonders like snapdragons, summer phlox, spider lilies, roses, and camellias. Inside the home of the former writer, you will be able to view original furnishing, artwork, and thousands of books. You can even take a look into her study, which still houses the typewriter that she used so frequently.
If you are in the mood to get a little wild, then you may want to ask your friendly charter bus driver to bring the lot of you over to 2918 West Capitol Street so that you can pay a visit to the lovely Jackson Zoo. While you are there, you will have the opportunity to see a huge variety of amazing animals including several types of large cats, elephants, monkeys and so much more.
