Description

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. Sit back and relax on a luxury motorcoach for this narrated 8-hour excursion departing every Friday from The Guest House at Graceland in Memphis to Tupelo, Mississippi.

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. 

Stop by the Tupelo Hardware Company, where Elvis’ mother purchased his first guitar and put music in the hands of the boy who grew to become a musical legend. Additional sites on this tour include significant landmarks such as The Tupelo Fairgrounds, the Elvis Homecoming Statue and schools that Elvis attended. A boxed lunch is provided as part of this tour, including a sandwich or salad and bottled water, potato chips and a cookie.
