Whether you are an Elvis fan or not, Graceland, is a unique experience! What Elvis did in such a short life is amazing! So if you have the desire to take a tour of a historic place, you will be pleased. A couple of recommendations:
Crowds are largest during Summer Week-ends, avoid these days if possible!
Likewise, you may want to buy your tickets in advance, so you can get in the tour line as soon as you arrive.
Lastly, they will want to take your photo prior to the tour, I have no problem with that, but $ 27 for their photo's was not a good deal to me.
Don't forget your camera! You are welcome to take photo's anywhere, but you have to turn off your "Flash" inside the buildings!
Let's begin our tour!
Elvis bought "Graceland" from a Doctor in 1957 for around $ 100,000, he was just 22 at the time!
A "Historic Marker" is at the entrance!
The living room reflects the style of the 50's, and the entire house is well maintained. The "Upstairs" is not open to the public, out of respect for Elvis!
The kitchen, "Never closed"! It was used 24/7!
The "Jungle Room" is a favorite of many, due to it's "Uniqueness"!
The "Grounds" are rather "Serene" now, but when Elvis was alive there were "Golf racing, shooting contests, horse riding, singing, and all with a lot of Love"!
Elvis, his Grand Mother, Father and Mother, and his twin brother, Jesse, (Who died at birth) are buried together at Graceland!
Well I hope you enjoyed this, and please add photo's/comments or questions, should you have any!
