Jackson has the worst potholes in the state! Jackson is a very spread out city. It depend on where you live, really, for walking distance. I would say 70 to 80 percent of people in area have a car. Having a car for transportation is necessary!

A buss for transportation is available but I wouldn't recommend it. One airport but I never see anyone flying in. Its very small and I think its private. There is a train! Also go to places there is no side walks to that's why walking isn't really an option.

In Jackson, MI I have everything I need. Many restuarants are available but the best pizza place is Klavons! Also the best donuts in Michigan I would say is Hinckley's donuts! Both are family owned and Hinckely's has been around for over 100 years! Jackson is a very industrial city. It's very spread out but overall it's not a bad place to live in, it's just boring.
I love living in Summit Township. I live in a great location where everything is close by, but you do not get the city feel. I have lived in Canada for a short period of time, and over there it so crowed with houses right on top of one another. Probably the best thing living where I am is Cascades park and falling waters trail. Great for someone who enjoys the outdoors.
