Tupelo Hardware Co. isn’t just a store that’s been in the Booth family for four generations. The shop is where Elvis Presley bought his very first guitar! A young Elvis went in with his mother in hopes of getting a bicycle for his birthday, but walked out with a guitar instead. Who knows what the world would be like if he’d gotten the bicycle!

4. Fairpark

Fairpark is home to both a statue of Elvis, commemorating when he played a homecoming concert at the fairgrounds in Tupelo, as well as a statue of Chief Piomingo of the Chickasaw tribe. Fans from all over the world flock to Fairpark to have their picture taken holding Elvis’ outstretched hand.

5. The Tupelo Automobile Museum

Where else in Mississippi can you have your picture taken standing next to a classic Delorean, a car Elvis himself purchased, and some of the coolest and strangest classic cars you didn’t even know existed? Short answer, nowhere but the Tupelo Automobile Museum! The museum is even more impressive once you realize that is all one man’s private collection.
