"one of Niki's famous short side trip" Tupelo by mafootje

Tupelo Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 85 photos

It's just a few miles more.....

We didn't visit Graceland when we were in Memphis, so Niki looked if it was a long way to go by Tupelo on our way to Pearl.

She calculated about 60 Mile, so we decided to go for it....

I don't know exactly how much more it was but i do know it was more then 60 miles.

But i must be said despite the fact they were doing some constructing at Elvis Birthplace it was cool to visit the place where Elvis grew up.

But the length of the trip did bring back memories of Niki's shortest way to the Grand Canyon last year ;-)
