Come on down south and visit the birthplace of Elvis!!! Come to the shops and explore the byways.

Take a drive down Hwy 78 and then The Natchez Trace, now a scenic parkway, weaves itself through Tupelo's past and into its future. Built to facilitate trade with the Natchez Indians to the South, the now-famous route has endured, serving British travelers in the 1700's and an ensuing flood of settlers who built peaceful civilizations up and down its great length - check out http://tupelo.net/about-tupelo/
for more info on the city.

Shop along Hwy 45, then visit the Tupelo zoo.
