In Tupelo, you can experience a small-town Christmas. The annual Reed’s Tupelo Christmas Parade is a holiday staple. Grab a cup of hot chocolate or seasonal Latte at Tupelo River Coffee, sit back, and enjoy the 74th Reed’s Tupelo Christmas Parade. Boogie to some Christmas tunes at Blue Canoe.
Because Tupelo forms a triangle with Memphis and Nashville, it’s known as the place where Elvis basically learned his musical style. Tupelo’s home for original live music, Blue Canoe, features award-winning Southern comfort food, an extensive list of craft beers on tap and live musical performances every night. Make sure to order the Blueberry Donut Bread Pudding—it’s a staple!
