My tour in Tupelo begins at the Birthplace. You will tour the actual home, the renovated museum, the restored original church, the 1979 chapel, and the landscaped grounds. There is an admission fee to tour the Birthplace home and museum. Then we visit the other places which were part of Elvis' life in Tupelo. Ten of those places are marked with an historic plaque. We visit the site of the Assembly of God church, Lawhon Elementary School, Johnnie's Drive-In, site of the Fairgrounds, Tupelo Hardware, site of Shakerag neighborhood, site of Mayhorn's grocery, site of WELO radio broadcasting, and last Priceville Cemetery. We will eat lunch at Johnnie's Drive-In, where Elvis ate: unless we do a tour on Sunday. Johnnie's is closed on Sundays. If available we will go inside the office of Lawhon Elementary which has a nice exhibit of photos and mementos. We will go inside Tupelo Hardware which is open every day but Sunday. At Priceville Cemetery, depending on the weather, we walk to the approximate location of Jesse Garon's grave, Elvis' brother.Arrange to visit Memphis Road Tours and other attractions in Memphis using our Memphis trip itinerary planner.
