""Do something worth remembering,"" said Elvis Presley. As you visit the town where he was born, this sentiment will swirl around in your mind, inspiring you to chase your next dream and put your grandest plans to action. As you tour stately Southern mansions and imagine the days of charming Main Streets, you’ll explore landmarks and cuisine all while humming your favorite songs by The King. And with Memphis, the “Birthplace of Rock ‘n Roll” just an exciting road trip away, Tupelo hotels truly put music at your fingertips. Not only will you do something worth remembering, your trip will go down, as Van Morrison would say, “as sweet as Tupelo honey.”
“Like a river flows surely to the sea, darling so it goes; some things are meant to be…” What is that you’re hearing in your dreams? The wise words of Elvis, of course. When you awaken, you’ll look at Mississippi as your oyster and see your adventures as they’re meant to be. Visit the two-room house where Elvis was born—now a humble museum—and take a stroll up Main Street as The King himself might have done. Your taste buds will sing along to classic cuisine like fried catfish and pecan pie as you refuel on your journey through town. Check out the Tupelo Buffalo Park and Zoo—the largest zoo in the entire state—where nearly 200 acres await. At Tombigbee State Park, the calming waters of the lake and fresh air breezing through the trails are a welcome escape. You might just right your own hit single here. We can’t think of a better way to pay homage to Elvis in his hometown.
Elvis may have been born in Tupelo, but he also spent many years in Memphis. You can follow in his footsteps when you journey up Route 22, letting nostalgia take you away at Graceland Mansion while the energy of Beale Street ignites your soul. As the sounds of the modern music scene float from doorways on this famous stretch of road, you’ll be enticed into darkened taverns for a pint or two…and who knows how many stories you’ll hear? Take a welcome rest before you return to cheap hotels in Tupelo with your astonishing new memories in tow.
Elvis also said, "Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain't goin' away." The truth of the matter is that when you’re figuring out where to stay in Tupelo, Travelocity can always connect you with the best deal, no matter where you end up. And our excellent selection of accommodation isn’t going anywhere, either. Whether you want to stay in an upscale suite with a swimming pool steps away, or you’re looking for a bit of privacy in a small hotel off the beaten path, we have what you’re looking for. The only thing we can’t arrange is a pink Cadillac. If you want one of those, you’ll have to ask around.
