What you get to do on my Tupelo tour.

I pick up at your hotel at 9:00 AM and we drive an hour and a half to the town
where Elvis Presley was born.
The first destination in Tupelo is  the Elvis Presley Birthplace
Park. You will tour the actual home, the renovated museum, the chapel, and the landscape
grounds.












Then we visit the other places which were part of Elvis' life in Tupelo. Ten of those places are
marked with an historic plaque. These places include Lawhon Elementary School, Johnnie's
Drive-In,  Tupelo Hardware, and  Milam Junior High.  Other places on our tour included the
former locations of the  Shakerag neighborhood,  Mayhorn's grocery, site of WELO radio
broadcasting,  the Assembly of God Church sand  the Fairgrounds.

Usually we will eat lunch at Johnnie's Drive-In and step inside Lawhon Elementary (with
permission of the school officials).  We will go inside Tupelo Hardware which  is owned and
managed by the same family who founded the store.

Our last stop is  Priceville Cemetery and, depending on the weather, we walk to the approximate
location of Jesse Garon's grave, Elvis' brother.
We will return to Memphis and your hotel by 5:00 or 5:30.

Here  is my  virtual tourof this city. I will add to this photo site from time to time.

The
Tupelo Elvis Fest is held every June, first weekend. Look to their website for details.

The cost for the Tupelo tour is $95 per person. Group discounts may
be available.  Use the contact Me page to ask.
There is an admission fee to tour the Birthplace home and museum. At present the admission is
$15.  See below.
Except during Elvis Week, at my discretion, customers will pay for their admission to the Elvis
Presley Birthplace. The above itinerary is typical of my tour.  Tour schedules and itinerary are
created at my discretion. I will alter as needed or by request.
