Jackson is the capital city of Mississippi. ``The City With Soul`` is famous for its roots in gospel, blues, and R&B music. The city`s small juke bars and illegal nightclubs put it on the map back in the day, and remains vibrant with musicians in the scene today. Jackson, chosen by the AAA Southern Traveler magazine as the best city in Mississippi, is known for its beautiful architecture: from the magnificent Capitol Building, which dates back to 1903, to the modest home of Medgar Evers. The editors of Convention South magazine have also selected Jackson as one of the 10 cities in the south where it is not important to participate in churches.
