And, of course, allow plenty of time for the mesmerizing Falls themselves—the rushing water will captivate the attention of the young and old alike with its continually-changing patterns and fantastic nighttime light shows and fireworks.

The Cascades were begun in 1929 by William Sparks, whose foundation was started to develop land into a recreation spot for Jackson's residents. The Cascades opened in 1932 in front of 25,000 people on William Sparks' 59th birthday and continue to be a defining feature of the city of Jackson.
