Tupelo is situated in northeast Mississippi, between Memphis, Tennessee, and Birmingham, Alabama and is best known as the birthplace of Elvis Presley. Tupelo charms visitors the world over with a unique blend of fascinating history, diverse recreation, a variety of shopping venues and interesting Tupelo tourism attractions. Although known as the birthplace of Elvis Presley, the town is also the headquarters to the scenic Natchez Trace Parkway, the incredible Tupelo Automobile Museum, and the family-friendly Health Work Kids Museum, and the Tupelo Buffalo Park & Zoo.

Visit the Elvis Presley Birthplace Museum, where you can tour the home, museum memorial chapel, the fountain of life and see the story wall. Make sure to stop by the Tupelo Hardware Store, a timeless gem where Gladys Presley bought Elvis his first guitar. (Elvis wanted a gun, they compromised on a guitar and music has never been the same since).
