Welcome to Tupelo
Tupelo is a sleepy North Mississippi hill country town that's mainly known for giving the world one of its most enduring pop icons and sex symbols – a dark-haired kid with a sneer named Elvis Presley. Many stop here to access the Natchez Trace Pkwy, and some stay for the birthplace of the King. If you're truly a fan of the man, pay a visit, but if you're only into visiting for the kitsch value, you may want to move along.
If you're interested in driving the Natchez Trace Pkwy, there is a great visitor center for that scenic road just outside of town.
