JACKSON, MS--(Marketwired - Apr 10, 2013) - Finding a vacation destination that everyone in the family can agree on is a challenge, but at the Jackson Marriott, guests are within easy reach of Jackson, Mississippi's top tourist attractions, which offer something for everybody.
Sports fans staying at this downtown Jackson hotel are less than six miles from Trustmark Park, home to the Mississippi Braves, the AA team of the MLB's Atlanta Braves. The season kicks off on April 4th in their home opener against the Mobile Baybears. Home games that take place on Friday nights feature fireworks. Tickets start as low as $6, making this a fun -- and affordable -- way to spend some time with the family.
Kids love animals, and this Ridgeland, MS hotel is also near the Jackson Zoo, home to 776 animals and 120 different species. Fall in love with the friendly orangutans, marvel at the majestic tigers, take a spin on the wooden carousel or catch a ride on the replica steam engine.
Guests of these Jackson, MS suites are also less than 6 miles from the Mississippi Children's Museum. Both fun and educational, the state's only children's museum features five galleries: Exploring Mississippi, Wild About Reading, Healthy Fun, Express Yourself and World at Work. Each of the galleries is focused on a different theme, from literacy and health to state heritage and the arts.
After a full day of family fun, parents can enjoy a little adults-only entertainment, too. Spend some time in the state-of-the-art fitness center or in the outdoor pool. Or, sit down for a quiet meal of contemporary American cuisine and regional specialties at the Bistro Restaurant. Those staying in a concierge-level suite can enjoy early evening hors d'oeuvres and late-evening pastries in the private lounge.
