Jackson is the capital of the state of Mississippi. While it does not offer much in terms of tourism, it can be used as a stopover for getting to other parts of the state or further.
Amtrak serves Jackson with the once-daily City of New Orleans between Chicago and New Orleans. 2 Union Station is located at 300 W Capitol St, just west of downtown. The station also serves as a hub for local buses.
