In addition to celebrating and shopping at the Buy Michigan Now Fall Fest, we highly encourage you to explore Jackson and the surrounding areas.
You can visit the oldest continuously operating train station in the nation, watch water cascade 500 feet during a dazzling evening light show at The Cascades, and explore art, local history, and even the stars at the Ella Sharp Museum.
If you like outdoor adventure there are plenty of opportunities to hike and bike, including the beautiful Ella Sharp Park, which is located on 562 acres along the banks of the southwest branch of the Grand River. You can also hit the links on 20 neighboring golf courses.
For those wishing to increase their familiarity with Michigan wines, you’ll find Chateau Aeronautique, Cherry Creek Old Schoolhouse Winery, and Sandhill Crane Vineyards offering tastings along the Pioneer Wine Trail. Jackson is also home to a growing craft beer industry including 127 Brewing Company, Grand River Brewery, and Shady’s Tap Room in nearby Brooklyn.
For you thrill-seekers, Brooklyn also happens to be home to the fastest track in NASCAR at Michigan International Speedway.
