A Rainy Day in Jackson

Pick-a-Place: A Cold Day In Jackson

In this month’s Pick A Place, we’ve found some neat things to do in Jackson when it’s too dreary or too cold to be outdoors.  Best of all, we made our trip in a roomy and comfortable Patty Peck Honda Odyssey.
Our day of activity stimulated all the senses–and included family favorites like pizza, ice cream, hands-on fun and some awesome dunk shots!  Come join the fun with the Partridges, a Ridgeland, MS family with five active kids.
Keep watching for more places we’ve picked!

Gretchen Cook fell in love with Mississippi in 1986. "It took me till 1989 to get a job here, but I was determined to leave my native Florida and move here." After a 20-year career in librarianship, she branched out into freelance writing, which led to publishing.
