The Tupelo Day Trip - Mississippi Birthplace of Elvis Presley

Tour like the king! Elvis Presley’s Graceland now offers an expertly-guided, luxury motorcoach tour to the birthplace of The King - Tupelo - as the ideal complement to the Graceland tour experience in Memphis, Tennessee.

The luxury coach ride to Tupelo will be a big part of the experience. Graceland tour guides take guests on a fun musical journey, celebrating the music that influenced Elvis Presley, the greatest entertainer of all time. Trace Elvis Presley’s musical roots, including the influences that inspired Elvis and other artists to begin mixing blues, country, gospel and R&B to create an entirely new sound – dubbed rock ‘n’ roll – which was brought to life in Memphis over 60 years ago.

While Elvis Presley became the biggest name in music history and achieved worldwide fame and fortune, his roots in the Northeast Mississippi city of Tupelo were humble. Guests will experience the rural setting of Elvis’ upbringing and see where it all began in the two-room house where the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll was born on January 8, 1935, the church he attended in his youth and see artifacts from his modest beginnings

Elvis’ Birthplace: Designated as an historic landmark by the State of Mississippi, Elvis’ birthplace, a house built by his father for $180, draws visitors from all over the world and is part of the 15-acre Elvis Presley Park. In addition to the Birthplace, you’ll also tour the Elvis Presley Museum, Elvis’ childhood church, the “Walk of Life” trail tracing Elvis’ career and personal life and see the “Elvis at 13” statue, the Elvis Story Wall and Fountain of Life, representing the 13 years that Elvis lived in Tupelo before moving to Memphis with his family.

Tupelo Hardware Company: Stop by the hardware store where Elvis’ mother, Gladys, purchased his first guitar and put music in the hands of the boy who grew to become a musical legend.

Driving Tour of Tupelo: Drive past some significant landmarks including The Tupelo Fairgrounds, the Elvis Homecoming Statue and schools that Elvis attended. A box lunch including sandwich or salad and bottled water, potato chips and a cookie.
