Points of Light

2. Gallery1 at Jackson State University (1100 J.R. Lynch St., Suite 4, 601.960.9250) A refreshing addition to west Jackson and to the city’s art scene.

Local creative { Andy Hilton } loves spending time outside and among art. Here are his 10 favorite zen spots in Jackson.

3. The old train trestle in Belhaven (behind Laurel Street Park) Years ago, the dilapidated bridge carried trains across the Pearl. Maybe it has a future in carrying pedestrian and cyclists. 4. Floating the Pearl River Put a canoe or kayak in at the Spillway and spend the day drifting past sandbars and cypress swamps on Jackson’s best natural resource. Get out at Lefleur’s Bluff. (Boat ramp for put-in is located near the southwest side of the Spillway) 5. Jackson Bike Advocates (909B Whitworth St., 601.212.3162) This growing organization is helping strengthen bicycling in Jackson with its monthly community rides and new Jackson Community Bike Co-op.
