Touch the hand of Elvis and you can’t help falling in love with Tupelo

Stroll through the welcoming streets of Tupelo, Mississippi and find yourself in front of City Hall, reaching back into history.   Just off Martin Luther King Drive (US 45), take Main St. about half a mile to the downtown area.   Parking is available on street or off street.   There are sweet shops to explore, including the Tupelo Hardware Store where the gift of a guitar gave birth to the King of Rock and Roll.  Fairpark is where you will catch a food truck, a local band and a chance to touch the hand of Elvis Presley.   Visit the East Tupelo home of the King or camp at the EP Lake and campground.   All worthy stops during your road trip or as a travel destination.
