"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
