“Our group had a wonderful visit to Tupelo. People are already making plans to return on their own bringing friends and family. I was telling my daughter about the trip and she said, “Who would have known that all this is going on in Tupelo?” I agree – it is a booming town and your hospitality certainly enhanced our trip.”
