Introducing the Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Jackson, Tennessee
Tuesday, August 5, 2014
Country Inns & Suites By Carlson is excited to introduce one of our newest hotels—the Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Jackson, Tennessee! Nestled between the larger cities of Memphis and Nashville along Interstate 40, Jackson is a convenient place to stop while driving through Western Tennessee, as well as an interesting vacation destination on its own.
With Union University just a few miles away, our Jackson hotel is the perfect home base for visiting families, prospective students, and returning alumni alike. If you’re not visiting the university, you won’t be short on things to do! The Carriage House Antique Market & Café is the perfect place to browse for everything from collectibles to unusual antiques. You might even find the perfect souvenir to bring home. Once you’re done browsing all the interesting pieces, grab a bite to eat at the on-site café.
Families will enjoy a trip to the Casey Jones Village, which has been voted as one of Tennessee’s top 10 travel attractions. The village is named for Casey Jones, the railroad engineer who became famous when he saved all the passengers aboard a train from a collision in 1900. Visitors can tour his home and the railroad museum, enjoy a round of mini golf, sit down to a true Southern dinner at the award-winning Old Country Store restaurant, and finish the day with a delicious treat of old-fashioned ice cream.
If you’re in the mood for some shopping, spend an afternoon browsing the stores at the Columns at Vann Drive. You can also take in some music history at the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. From Carl Perkins to Buddy Holly, you’ll find paintings, photos, and artifacts at this rockin’ museum.
After each fun day of exploring all that Jackson has to offer, rest your head at night at the comfortable Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Jackson, TN. We’ll have a free, hot breakfast ready for you each morning and complimentary high-speed Internet to keep you connected throughout your stay!
