"Tupelo - a great place to live and work"

Tupelo is known around the world as the Birthplace of Elvis, but we know it as just the place to raise a family. Tupelo is large enough to be called a city, but still carries the charm of a small town in the rural south. Of course, religious services are a major part of the week for most people, but night life activities are aplenty for those who like to meet and greet away from the church doors.

Several events such as the Blue Suede Cruise and the Gum Tree Festival are held throughout the year to give the locals a chance to shine for tourists who make the trip into town for the events.

For the potential resident of the city, we have one of the best school systems in Mississippi. The movement to bring business and activities back to the downtown area of manifested itself in Tupelo as the Fairpark district where all matters of dining, dancing, and shopping can be found.

I highly recommend Tupelo as a stop on your travels, and if looking for a nice place to settle, there's always room for one more!
