Newly Renovated Tupelo CVB Opens

TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) –  The first stop for many visitors to Tupelo gets a major renovation and is now open to the public.

The Tupelo Convention and Visitors Bureau has undergone an extensive interior renovation since Labor Day.

The goal of the renovations was to make the space more interactive and engaging to visitors.  People can exercise with “Health works” Staff on a video,  take a virtual reality tour down the Natchez Trace Parkway,  and of course,  learn about Tupelo’s most famous hometown boy, Elvis Presley.

Officials say they wanted to show visitors the many attractions in Tupelo and the area.

“So we want to create awareness that there are things to do more than just the Elvis Presley Birthplace, it extends the stay and gets people staying in Tupelo longer and experiencing all we have to offer,” said CVB Executive Director Neal McCoy.

The $1.1 million project came in under budget, and ahead of schedule.
