Down South...Tupelo, Miss - Take Hwy 78 East and Explore...

Where Elvis was born...lots of shopping, places to eat, see, and explore.


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.
