None of the towns along the Tenn Tom are big and Fulton MS is no exception. There’s no WiFi anywhere, cell phone coverage does not work most of the time and the nearest rental car office was 30 miles away. Our marina is 3 miles from Fulton so we dropped the motorbike and went out for a visit. We drove through the very small downtown and no one was home. What stores they had were closed. Google maps did show a couple of restaurants in that area but the information appeared to be historical.
The day after we arrived Frank and Relda picked us up and took us to Oxford MS, home of Ole Miss, or Mississippi State University. Oxford has a nice town square with the old courthouse in the middle and the old downtown buildings all around it. This downtown is still very much alive because of the university nearby. We also saw a number of fine old homes there.
The next day we visited Frank and Relda’s hometown of Tupelo MS which also turns out to be Elvis Presley’s home town where he lived until he was 13. He bought his first guitar at the hardware store which is still in operation downtown, and played his music in a small Pentecostal church which is preserved along with his original home at a museum which we saw.
