From Jackson, it's about 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southeast to Milwaukee and 100 miles (161 kilometers) to the south to Chicago.
Of course, there's so much more to Southeast Wisconsin than just Jackson, so try to set aside some time to visit the region's sights and attractions. Pewaukee and Iron Ridge are two other places worth checking out while you're in Southeast Wisconsin.
Organize some transportation and spend some time in Milwaukee, a retail and transport hub for the region, located some 25 miles (40 kilometers) away from Jackson. This bigger city offers a wide range of tourist attractions, such as Milwaukee Art Museum, St. John's Cathedral and Riverwalk Plaza. Milwaukee City Hall, Pabst Theater and Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory are other attractions in Milwaukee that should be high on every visitor's schedule.
Sample a little culture, learning and lore with a little sunshine and fresh air at Southeast Wisconsin's fabulous open-air markets.
Take a break from seeing the sights and spend a relaxing afternoon canoeing or fishing.
Sadly, vacations can't go on forever, so when it's time fly home, head to the nearest major airport in Milwaukee, 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the southeast.
