A couple of years ago, DiscoverAmerica.com sent out a reporter and put together a 2½ minute video featurette on Michigan's city of Jackson.

They put out videos of places around the country, encouraging Americans to travel in our own country (and keep our money here instead of overseas).

This video shows Ella Sharp Park & Museum, downtown, the first State Prison, the Pioneer Wine Trail, Armory Arts dept. and more.

Take a look at this short - but impressive - video and check out some of what Jackson has to offer...whether you're a lifetime resident of Jackson or even if you live hundreds of miles away!
