Welcome To Jackson


Jackson is a favorite for those who love both the bustling activity of a mid-size city and appreciate the qualities of a nearby rural environment. Located halfway between Memphis and Nashville conveniently on Interstate 40, and in the heart of the Americana Music Triangle, Jackson is where country music connected to the blues and the sound of Rock-A-Billy was heard around the world.



Affordability is one of the community’s strengths. The median cost of available housing is below national and regional averages. Prospective homeowners may choose between new and established neighborhoods for homes within any price range. Factor in the low cost of living and people may invest a greater percentage of income into housing. Transfers often find their equity goes further in Jackson.



With more than two million square feet of retail space, Jackson has a variety of retail stores from quaint, local boutiques to national retailers ranking among the top 100 retail markets in the United States. The trade area consists of 13 West Tennessee counties with a population of around 400,000, allowing for many services and amenities not normally found in a community its size.



Downtown Jackson has a vibrant selection of retail, restaurants, apartments and single family homes. Spaces for businesses to grow and venues to accommodate entertainment are available.



Jackson offers numerous sports for a host of adult and children’s recreational leagues, golf courses, tennis courts, bowling centers, baseball, T-ball, softball, soccer and other activities including croquet and pickeball courts! Hiking and cycling trails can be found, along with many places to enjoy water recreation such as kayaking and fishing. Middle Fork Bottoms, a new 800 acre natural area, includes paved walking trails, 10 acre fishing lake, overlooks, boardwalks and kayaking, among other activities. West TN Healthcare Sportsplex features 17 baseball and softball fields, 2 dog parks and 20 public parks covering 800 acres. Other recreational options such as BMX races, rodeos, horse shows and historic reenactments are never far away.
