Tupelo, Mississippi is an upbeat, happy city where people believe they can accomplish anything. Situated in the heart of the Americana Music Triangle, no music pilgrimage is complete without a visit to the birthplace of the boy who would be king.

Travelers to the city can experience the first part of Elvis’ incredible story by visiting the birthplace where he took his first breath, the church where he sang his first song, and the hardware store where he strummed his first guitar.

The brand new Tupelo Visitors Center is the perfect starting point for a trip to the city where anything is possible. From interactive exhibits that highlight Tupelo’s top attractions and a collective timeline of the city’s rich history, to displays focused on Elvis’ childhood in Tupelo as told like never before, the Tupelo Visitors Center will fully prepare visitors for exploring this unique, southern town.
