Jackson, MS ranks as the worst city (of a decent size) I've ever visited



And yes, I've been to most of the "urban" places in the USA.

What's your pick (keep population at 200,000+).

I live in Jackson. Why do you dislike it?

Depends on where you go and what you do. All cities have their good and bad. I actually like Jackson, especially the outer areas like Ridgeland.

Not sure what to recommend in the way of hotels.

Well if you're staying tonight, my favorite spot that not many people are aware of is Underground 119. Google it. The band sometimes plays a little loud but otherwise, I love it. $10 cover charge though.

Northern part of the city isn't that bad.

Madison/Ridgeland to the north and Brandon/Pearl to the east are both nice areas....I have to agree though, that the city of jackson does rival the worst in the country on the scale of suck....



ETA: if you are staying more nights, let me know and I can steer you to a good hotel...

There are some good restaurants here. To name a few, Bonsai on Lakeland is the best hibachi I've ever had. Hal and Mal's is an eclectic little zone with great tamales. Fenian's is an Irish bar that gets mixed reviews but the crowd is friendly. Underground 119 (see my previous post). The Renaissance in Ridgeland has Ruth Chris, Mint, Biaggi's (recommend the sicilian margarita) and P.F. Chang's. My fav restaurant is Amerigo's on Old Canton. Tiramasu.

Quite welcome
And I'm sure you've seen the sign, but Les Miles is visiting with the TigerTour on 5/10. I plan on going to get an autograph for my buddy on his birthday.

There are certain areas of Jackson you don't ever need to be in or see.

I lived in Jackson briefly when I took a position in my move up the corporate ladder and all. We were the only store in the company that was allowed to close an hour earlier because of the neighborhood. After dark, you could hear the gunshots going off. Bad move on my part. I left Nashville for it too.

Jackson gets my vote too.
Imagine Denham Springs, Louisiana on a much larger scale with some crazy-eyed ghetto violence thrown in.
I lived there for the 18 longest months of my life.
It has all the charm of a melted vanilla ice cream cone.
Boring as hell, with really boring people and very little to do.
The redneckery is stunning.
It was marginally better than the two years I spent in Vicksburg.

Ha! I lived in Vicksburg for 3 years and I happen to be going back today to listen to the Poet Laureate of Louisiana, Darrell Bourque. Beechwood afterwards for a steak.

Nice country. Just BORING. It would be a great place to raise small farm animals, though....

The Metro area of Jackson is nice, but the inside the city limits suck.

The food here is decent. If you stay north of Jackson, the place isn't too bad. I only go to Jackson for school and work.

Has anyone eaten the crawfish at Mudbugs on Old Fannin? I have had a couple of people tell me they are the best they have had here.
