“Way back in the early 1970’s I wrote in one of our tour brochures that Tupelo was “the friendliest place in the USA”....I’m still using that same phrase today – because it’s true! Having been bringing our Elvis Fan tour groups to Tupelo for well over 40 years we’ve got to know the city well – not just the lovely folk at the Elvis Birthplace, the super-efficient CVB, the retailers, restaurants and hoteliers who all offer hospitality ‘par excellence’, the police and city officials who do such sterling work for us and the city, but the folk who live and work in Tupelo too. And from all of them we get the warmest of welcomes. Far from feeling like intruders to their town they make us feel like honoured guests and, over the years, that has encouraged us to stay longer and longer in this great little city. You should do so too – and you’ll come to love it as we do.”
