Jackson Charter Bus tour – Blues and Beauty
Jackson is a land of many stories. Seventy-five million years ago, present-day Jackson sat on a volcanic island. Today the Mississippi Coliseum, a 6500-seat multipurpose arena, sits on top of its caldera. The Blues were born here in Mississipi. In 2006, the Mississippi Blues Trail was established to educate the public about this uniquely American art form. One-hundred-and-eighty-nine historic markers are spread out over the state, with each sign planted at a locale that played some role in shaping the blues genre. Jackson has 13 such sites. On Roach Street, for example, you’ll find one dedicated to legendary blues pianist Otis Spann, who was born at the spot on March 21, 1930. You can reserve a Jackson Charter Bus for a trip through the Mississippi Blues trail.
