No, this isn't a notice posted inside a dormitory or military camp...you'll find these words painted in the stairwells of #CellBlock7, @experiencejxn 's unique prison museum! Run by the @ellasharpmuseum, Cell Block 7 is a formerly-active cell block (yes, inmates once lived here!) that's housed on the grounds of Michigan's current Southern Regional prison. It's all kinds of creepy and fascinating, and it's open to the public--so you can go inside, too! . Learn more about the museum and what you'll see behind the bars and barbed wire today on my blog (direct link temporarily in profile) - wadinginbigshoes.com . **(Photo taken and posted with permission from the Michigan Department of Corrections)** . . . . #blogbffs #michiganblogger #midwestisbest #midwestbloggers #jacksonmi #puremichigan #mittenlove #prisonmuseum #experiencejxn #travelblogger #wander #theinstagramlab #sheisnotlost #michiganders #museums #abmlittlethings #museumlover
"We can’t even decide we have to decide ok we can’t do everything that’s in town so what are we going to pick to do? Whether it’s the winter beer festival that was just going on, there’s a gem show, there’s festivals there’s movies, there’s all kinds. There’s just too much to pick from sometimes in our opinion."-Amy Reimann, Former Executive Director at Ella Sharp Museum and Cell Block 7
"People are not looking for something to do in Jackson if they don’t know because there’s you know you can see in several of the museums. Me being a golfer and working in the golf industry there’s … you could play a different golf course every weekend of the summer and you wouldn’t play the same golf course twice so. I know there’s a lot of parks and stuff if I don’t get to see them as much because I’m always working in the summer. But there’s plenty of stuff going on in Jackson."-Brian Roberts, Director of Golf at The Grande Golf Course
"Actually a lot of times people who have lived here and moved away. They’re coming back because they miss some things. One of the things of course they miss is we have to go to the Beach Bar. There’s always the short list of things that they, places they want to go, things they want to do. And I have friends that come back from California that have to go Downtown and get a Coney dog so it just depends. Everything revolves around food at least with a lot of the people who come visit me. "-Cindy Allen, Potter Center at Jackson College
"We’re improving the biggest part that I see about Jackson is that we’re improving the downtown area is come alive is coming alive and so I just love this community and I’ll do anything I can for it and boost it and make it better."-John Crist, President and CEO, CP Federal Credit Union

Had a great time the other night at the Media Night for the Hot Air Jubilee! I have never been up close and personal with a hot air balloon before but thanks to a couple great pilots I got to step into a basket, help put up a balloon, chase one to its landing, and take one down! Now to save up so I can ride in one! Thank you to JTV, Experience Jackson, Hot AirTime Balloon, and more for such an exciting experience! #JacksonMI

3 hours down... 3 hours to go. The hubby and I are in Jackson, MI to pick up our youngest who just spent an action packed week with our beloved Oma & Opa. This town made the perfect 1/2 way point -- having a nice Brewery to meet at was a BIG bonus! #grandriverbrewing #jacksonmi #meetingpoint #missedmyboy #wardrobestylist #stylecoach #fahionista #stylishmom #cabiclothing #francosarto #katespadehandbag
