Listen to this story

WASHINGTON — Jackson is the capital of Mississippi and also known as the ‘City with Soul’ thanks to the numerous musicians prominent in blues, gospel, folk, and jazz.

Mississippi offers 25 state parks and four state-run golf courses, two of which are located in Jackson. LeFleur’s Bluff State Park and LeFleur’s Bluff Golf Course are both conveniently located a few miles north of downtown Jackson.

The park is named after the late 18th-century explorer Louis LeFleur. The City of Jackson was initially called LeFleur’s Bluff but was later changed to Jackson in honor of Major General Andrew Jackson who would later become the seventh President of the United States.
