These places include Lawhon Elementary School, Johnnie’s Drive- In, Tupelo Hardware and the Shake Rag neighborhood. Usually you will eat lunch (not included in the price) at Johnnie’s Drive-In and step inside Lawhon Elementary (with permission of the school officials). You will go inside Tupelo Hardware which is owned and managed by the same family who founded the store. You will stop for lunch at Johnnie’s Drive-in, a favorite of Elvis’ and maybe you will be lucky enough to sit in the same seat Elvis used. You will visit Priceville Cemetery, where Elvis’s twin brother, Jesse Garon, who died at birth, is buried.

You will also stop at the larger than life statue of Elvis’ 1956 Homecoming Concert at the Tupelo Fairgrounds was based on a famous shot called “the Hands” by Roger Marshutz.  Facing east toward his Tupelo birthplace, the statue is poised for a perfect photo op with Tupelo City Hall standing behind his right shoulder and Tupelo Hardware visible over his left shoulder.  The statue stands on the site of the old fairgrounds where the concert took place

Southern Soul Experience

13 Days & 12 Nights

The Deep South is like nowhere else in the USA. It is a land of cotton, molasses and tobacco; antebellum mansions and shotgun shacks; Civil War battlefields and Civil Rights conflicts; oak trees draped in Spanish moss and bayous brimming with crawfish; sun-drenched beaches, virgin forests and mountains of Appalachia.

Driving through the Deep South could not be a more hospitable experience. There is such a relaxed feel here. Locals are only too pleased to help out whether it is giving directions or serving some of those sumptuous Southern specialties. As you drive be sure to switch on the radio and listen to blues, jazz, country, rock’n’roll and soul that are synonymous with the Deep South.

There’s no better way to understand the life of Deep South USA than to take a tour through its musical landscape – soulful blues, brassy jazz, country twang, riverboat calliopes and gospel choirs. Live music venues abound in the Deep South from the funky scene in Atlanta, Georgia to the Grand Ole Opry in Tennessee and the legendary studios of Alabama’s Muscle Shoals to Morgan Freeman’s Ground Zero blues bar in Clarksdale, Mississippi and along Highway 61 to Beale Street in Memphis. There’s live music year-round, performed in authentic and intimate settings where the memories will last a lifetime.
