Jackson Attractions & Hotel Information

Jackson loves the USA International Ballet Competition, and the USA International Ballet Competition loves Jackson!

Visitors who come to Jackson for the USA IBC  appreciate the beauty, warm hospitality and soul of Mississippi’s capital city. There’s always something to do within easy walking distance of Thalia Mara Hall, where USA IBC performances are held. The Mississippi Museum of Art, new Civil Rights Museum and Museum of Mississippi History and numerous other downtown attractions and eateries are conveniently close by. Within a 10-minute drive of downtown, the historic and eclectic Belhaven and Fondren neighborhoods offer more dining and shopping options. The Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, Children’s Museum and Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame also are just minutes away.  


Historic Day Tours: More Than a Tourist – your One-Stop Concierge Service in Mississippi. Tours are available on June 15 and 18 (days without USA IBC performances). Click here for more information – private tours are also available.
